About the Book:
When Robert X. Cringely finished writing Accidental Empires: How the Boys of Silicon Valley Make Their Millions, Battle Foreign Competition, and Still Can’t Get a Date five years ago, Robert had no idea how it would be received. Nothing quite like it had been written before. Books about the personal computer industry at that time either were mired in techno babble or described a gee whiz culture in which there were no bad guys. In Accidental Empires ebook, there are bad guys. This book contained the total wisdom of my fifteen plus years in the personal computer business. But what if I had no wisdom? What if I was wrong?
With this new edition, I can happily report that the verdict is in: for the most part, I was right. Hundreds of thousands of readers, many of whom work in the personal computer industry, have generally validated the material presented here. With the exception of an occasional typographical error and my stupid prediction that Bill Gates would not marry, what you are about to read is generally accepted as right on the money.
This new edition is prompted by a three-hour television miniseries based on Accidental Empires ebook and scheduled to play during 1996 in most of the English-speaking world. The production, which took a year to make, includes more than 120 hours of interviews with the really important people in this story—even the megalomaniacs and sociopaths. These interviews, too, confirmed many of the ideas I originally presented in Accidental Empires, as well as providing material for the new chapters at the end of the ebook.
