Overview

Seven Floors High is based around a true story of life inside iaxis, a London based Internet start-up during the NASDAQ boom of 2000. Written with style and humour, the story is a personal account of one individual who saw the "paper tiger" from the inside. Set against this backdrop, the book also contains a very powerful Non-Fiction sub-theme describing in great detail, with insight and analysis, several covert intelligence operations carried out by America's National Security Agency and the Central Intelligence Agency. This intelligence sub-theme pays very close attention to the build up of the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait in 1990 and also details several other covert operations from recent history.

    Makes you think!

    The small three letter word called 'wow!' perfectly sums up my reaction to having just finished reading Steve Goddard's excellent first book, Seven Floors High. Having only started it on Sunday, I just couldn't put it down as the plot makes you laugh out loud, then in the space of a few lines, it forces the reader to think and then fills you with a desire to learn more about the CIA and it's activities in foreign countries. You will also learn a great deaI about the hype behind the dotcom world. I can strongly recommend this book and urge the reader to take the day off work and read it from cover to cover!

    Exhilarating, Insightful and Highly Recommended!

    Seven Floors High is a fast paced, intelligent and supremely confident debut piece of writing. Anyone looking for a compulsive and highly enjoyable read should finish whatever book you are reading and make reading this priority number one. The story itself is a journey filled with humour and thought provoking detail of what went on inside a telco start-up during the Wall Street telecoms boom of 2000. The readers attention never wanders as the pages turn and just keep turning as we learn about various individuals whom are on course to make their millions (or so they thought!). Yet this is no ordinary story which details corporate anarchy, sex, drugs and alcohol at the turn of the Millenium. With Seven Floors High, Goddard has successfully managed to integrate a devastating sub-theme of highly controversial intelligence information surrounding real covert operations of the NSA and the CIA. All of this info comes out via an individual who once worked for the National Security Agency and whose narration is delivered with critcal attention to detail, composure and analysis. This highly explicit intelligence information is further complemented by a 'Secret Narrator' whose intelligence analysis throughout the book acts as an explosive sub-current to what is already a highly enjoyable story about greed. Buy this book now and read it twice. *****BUY*****
