This book was a complete joy. Andy gave me the book about a year ago and it was stuck on my shelf glaring at me. My loss. I should have read it earlier.
The book is a great history of technology, markets, and more. And it is incredibly well written and easy to digest (and very funny).
I highly recommend this book. And I read the actual book but there is a FREE pdf copy available on Andy Kessler's web site.
