    An Insiders View to the Software Wars

    Mr. Silverstein has crafted a riveting story in a way that only an insider can. Set against the high-tech software wars of the nineties, The Doomsday Virus has it all -- interesting, true-to-life characters, a surprising plot, and details smacked with realism. A great read.

    A Real Thriller!

    This is a smart techno-thriller. Instead of depending on a lot of unnecessary physical violence, the book gets into the havoc computer viruses can cause. It is tightly written, has interesting characters, a strong plot, and a good love story. Highly recommended!
