Book Review : Dot Bomb

Dot.Bomb: The Strange Death of Dot.Com Britain by Rory Cellan-Jones is a very interesting book. Its worth the read to. Rory gives a viewpoint of the Internet bubble rarely thought to have occured. The one in the UK. Rory discusses the era between march 1999- march 2000 and the rise and fall of internet companies and there desires to set up there IPO'S. The companies include lastminute, clickmango, first tuesday and obviously Boo. These are the main companies, but Rory does add lesser one's. The book is an hilarious look at the greed the internet bubble created in Britain (or is it London?) Rory, gets in close and personal, having worked at the BBC as the internet expert.
This book is cool. Its nice to think that not only was silicon valley so greedy and other books do exist on the subject. 8 out of 10.
