This book should appeal to variety of interests - entrepreneurship, investment banking, greed of dot.com era, sleaze &sex at the highest levels, suspense, Israel & Palestine conflict and what not.
The author who is said to have experienced the dot.com bubble first hand as an entrepreneur does an outstanding job in walking us thru the typical machinations behind the madness of dot.com bubble burst. Wannabe entrepreneurs can learn a lot as how to watch their backs when they want to take their companies public or deal with mergers & acquisitions.
It's a murder mystery surrounding the murder of a dot.com CEO. The author has been very creative in using some things that became synonymous with dot.com bust including everyone becoming day traders, yahoo chat boards, stock charts, over hyped media exposure and so on. That creativity is certainly praise worthy.
At times, the novel does become boring especially if you are reading from mere entertainment perspective. Too much details about 9/11 etc.
All in all a nice read for variety of interests.
