Reader comments:

Vallee is a compelling storyteller - His anecdotes are highly interesting and bear the ring of truth.

San Francisco Chronicle

“Network Revolution” is a thought-provoking book by a bright, articulate computer scientist. And one who has a heart.

Management Technology

In the early 1990's, when the Internet was about to be discovered by mainstream media, I found this book (then already ten years old) on a friend's bookshelf. I started reading a chapter about some “Midnight Irregulars” and immediately recognized what the author was describing (…) That was enough for me to want to read the whole book. The author goes on to make a number of predictions, some of which seem remarkably accurate today. Our hardware may be thousands of times faster, but have we really made any significant progress since this book was written?
