I bought the book amidst lot of hype from my friends and relatives who have read this book. I didn't find it so exciting as to place it on the top shelf. This book definitely gives a very close encounter with the 'happenings in a corporation's entire life' in silicon valley. Some useful insights into how the industry works, which include dealings with Apple, IBM, AT&T, Microsoft are captured very well. Slightly boring in parts. And a completely one-sided view of the world, obviously.

This is a good book, but a little light on characters, sub-plots, etc. It is a fun read (not a must read). If you're a techie, I suggest reading it, but be prepared to already be familiar with the 'little lessons' sprinkled throughout. They are a bit dated.
