Reviews

Americans with an eye cocked toward the markets were asked to believe that Amazon, a two-year-old bookseller, was worth more than the combined values of Sears and U.S. Steel.
"As fine a guide to the late 1990s world of Pioneer Square and Pike Street as we are likely to see." --The Weekly Standard

"Funny, contemplative . . . a memoir that generates frequent smiles of recognition." --San Francisco Chronicle

"The most entertaining memoir I've read this year." --Carlin Romano, The Philadelphia Inquirer

"Marcus is a graceful writer with an eye for detail." --The Boston Globe

"Should win over even the most jaded dot-com vets with [its] swift, clever, and intelligent rendering of their history." --Seattle Weekly
