~TOTALLY WIRED SCORES REVIEW in NATIONAL, TODAY
‘TOTALLY WIRED: On the Trail of the Great Dotcom Swindle’ – by ANDREW SMITH. PUBLISHER: SIMON and SCHUSTER
scored a really great, and very insightful review in the NATIONAL – today: SAT OCT 6, 2012
written by ALAN WHITE, the concise but eloquent essay, does a really nice job of defining the book itself, introducing Josh, and setting up the scene . . a good capsule account of the early Internet days: past, present and future.
BTW: THE NATIONAL is the ABU DHABI Media company’s first English-language publication, setting a “new standard of quality English-language journalism in the Middle East.” (!!)
“It may be about a series of events that happened years ago, but it’s the first great analysis of the Internet Age”.
“ANDREW SMITH’S first book ‘MOONDUST’ was an investigation into what happened to the astronauts who walked on the moon after they completed their mission. His second book likewise is about a man who ascended to the uncharted heights, and fell to Earth. Like the astronauts, he saw things no other person had seen before, and like the astronauts it left him burnt out. Who is he, and what did he see ?
His name is JOSH HARRIS . . .”
