    About Silicon Valley:
    The New New Thing

    From Michael Lewis, who writes a lot about Wall St and such. Great writer.

    http://amzn.com/0393347818

    "Michael Lewis was supposed to be writing about how Jim Clark, the founder of Silicon Graphics and Netscape, was going to turn health care on its ear by launching Healtheon, which would bring the vast majority of the industry's transactions online. So why was he spending so much time on a computerized yacht, each feature installed because, as one technician put it, "someone saw it onStar Trekand wanted one just like it?""

    I absolutely love the rank hypocrisy of this endeavor. What a book. It lines bird cages, props up truck tires when your changing a flat; hell, it can double as a door stop. But as an example of how to eat, see-sawing between obesity and starvation is a great way to load the decks for a massive coronary:

    Trick question. The answer is "there are no good books about these topics".
