Description du produit

Revue de presse

Voici une histoire de la Silicon Valley, berceau du prochain millénaire, champ de bataille du pouvoir économique et technologique de demain. L'auteur du best-seller "Liar's Poker" la raconte au travers de la vie et de la personnalité du créateur de Netscape, Jim Clark. L'homme, un entrepreneur hors du commun, également constructeur de yachts pour le moins étonnants, vient de lancer "Healtheon" dans l'industrie de la santé, une startup faite pour rivaliser avec Microsoft. Au-delà des faits, Michael Lewis dresse une carte des marchés et de l'entreprise du XXIe siècle. Son livre devrait prochainement faire l'actualité. -- Idées clés, par Business Digest --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition CD .

Présentation de l'éditeur

In the last years of the millennium, bestselling author Michael Lewis sets out to find the world's most important technology entrepreneur, the man who embodies the spirit of the coming age. He finds him in Jim Clark, the billionaire who founded Netscape and Silicon Graphics and who now aims to turn the healthcare industry on its head with his new billion-dollar project. Lewis accompanies Clark on the maiden voyage of his vast yacht and, on the sometimes hazardous journey, takes the reader on the ride of a lifetime through a landscape of geeks and billionaires. Through every brilliant anecdote and funny character sketch, Michael Lewis allows us an inside look at the world of the super-rich, whilst drawing a map of free enterprise in the twenty-first century. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition CD .

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Wonderfully framed narrative 13 septembre 2016
Par Adam John Zimmerman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Lewis has a genuine gift for taking complex concepts (as he did in Moneyball, Boomerang, and Liar's Poker) and breaking it down in a narrative format that manages to convey a maximum amount of meaning into the story. In "The New New Thing" Lewis focuses on Jim Clark's ascent in the world of Silicon Valley entrepreneurship and Clark's persistent pursuit of the titular "new new thing."

Explaining the how's, why's, and differences between the old way of doing things and the new (or new new) way of doing things can be tricky, because it assumes you have some understanding of how the old (or old old) way of doing things works. I'm not a Wall Street investor, but I felt not only capable of understanding Lewis' framework of explanation, but I felt like I could extrapolate deeper meaning from it. He manages to paint fascinating pictures of all the people involved in the pursuit of the new new thing and how their constellation manages to orbit itself as it becomes standard operating practice in the growing tech industry.

I also felt like I could better understand how the minds of billionaire "executives" (as Lewis points out, Jim Clark wasn't exactly sure how to describe exactly what it was he does) and how they anticipate the next new new thing, why it interests them, and how quickly it starts to lose their interest. If you can understand someone like Clark, you can start to understand the industry.
3.0 étoiles sur 5 Lewis's Worst--But still worth reading. 25 mars 2017

It is difficult to rate this book. While it is entertaining and somewhat informative and Michael Lewis writes well and tells a good tale--I've read nearly all his books--this is still his WORST book.

Does that that mean I wouldn't recommend it? No! I still liked it, and would recommend it as a "good" read, I was disappointed because I expect a "great" read from this author.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 typical Lewis: interesting and readable 27 décembre 2010
Par bottomofthe9th - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
y least favorite of the in-depth Lewis books, but that's not saying much. Unlike Liar's Poker, which Lewis thought would bring sweeping change by bringing some sketchy practices to light but still rings true, The New New Thing feels dated now, 10 years later. Nonetheless, as someone who understood the late 1990s tech boom only peripherally, this book was insightful, both in terms of those companies' business models (or lack thereof, as the case may be) and some of the relevant personalities. (Still important: Larry Ellison, John Doerr)

Although I doubt commercial interest warrants, this book could use an updated epilogue, particularly surrounding Healtheon/WebMD, which I have to think does not at all match the original vision.

As usual, very well written and engaging; always the case with Lewis. I didn't find Jim Clark as sympathetic as I think I was intended to, and as a result some of the chapters focused on him personally (especially his flying a helicopter, and sailing his boat across the Atlantic) dragged a bit.

Reading this for the first time, I kept forgetting it's 15 years old. Granted, the Internet was already a sensationally transformative thing, even in 1999 when this was written, but this book confirms that Lewis -- perhaps thanks to his exposure to people like Jim Clark and other titans of the Silicon Valley -- had an understanding of and appreciation for the the tech revolution that continues on today that was ahead of his time. Thankfully, he makes good use of his linguistic gift of being able to break down complicated ideas and issues into plain English in this book. Highly recommend.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Under-, underwhelming 25 décembre 1999
Par P. Meltzer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I guess I'm clearly in the minority on this one, but I was frankly unimpressed by this book. For one thing, Clark simply didn't strike me as such a fascinating guy. He may be interesting to the same extent that anyone who makes billions of dollars may be interesting, but no more so. (The guy makes his first billion, and decides he wants a bigger better boat than everyone else. If that's not a cliche, I don't know what is.) In fact, I thought the way he made his money (instant huge wealth based on IPO's of money-losing companies that he may have first thought of but then had little to do with) wasn't even that interesting. I also thought the book lacked a focus and cohesive theme and that all the material about the Hyperion boat--which takes up huge chunks of the book--was kind of dull. I do think that Lewis has a nice writing style and I give him credit for that (I never read Liar's Poker), but I really can't say that I would highly recommend this book to anyone.
