Review:
Every technologist should, at some point in the educational process, be required to read this book. (The preceding proviso is, unfortunately, subject to the risk that said technologist may fail to grasp the book's underlying lessons.) Peter G. Neumann is well known to the members of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), but to thousands more he is known as moderator of the RISKS- FORUM Digest electronic mailing list (or its Usenet mirror, comp.risks). (RISKS is notable for the quality and interest of its material, and is a recommended mailing list for all newcomers to the Internet, regardless of their areas of interest.)

Review:
The founder of the visionary, yet doomed, GO Corporation kept notes throughout his years at the helm, thinking that one day he would produce a book. It shows. This is a vivid and lively rise-and-fall account of a company born to create a pen-based computer. It begins on a corporate jet with the author and fellow industry visionary Mitchell Kapor, founder of Lotus, sharing a vision of pen computing. From there, Startup quickly leaps to the day-to-day challenges of hiring staff, constantly reassessing and readjusting goals, and coping with the stress of endless rounds of venture capital funding.
