Did you watch in horror as the stock market collapsed and the "dot-com bubble" burst, wiping out an old-age nest-egg, college fund, or early-retirement plan? Who caused this disaster? Adventure Capital points the finger at Venture Capitalists and tells you why your money still isn't safe.Through a personal tale of one startup's rise and fall on the backs of scheming venture capitalists, Adventure Capital highlights the worst excesses of the VC industry in a series of diary-entries of an entrepreneur swept up in the exuberance of Silicon Valley technology companies.A must-read for entrepreneurs starting a business, venture capitalists wanting insight on the worst of their kind, or anyone who thinks their money is safe now the bubble has burst.

Surprisingly compelling
For ostensibly a business book, there certainly is quite a bit of adventure and crazy characters for the entrepreneur to deal with.
