Fire in the Valley: The Making of the Personal Computer
In 1984, two beat reporters wrote what has since become the seminal work on the creation of the PC industry. Now back by popular demand, this updated re-issue of Fire in the Valley contains more outrageous tales about, and photos of, the individuals that created the personal computer.

A fascinating account of an idea that caught fire, Fire in the Valley became the basis for TNT's Original Movie Pirates of Silicon Valley that aired early summer 1999.
