Bringing Nothing to the Party

31brfax10yl_sl500_aa180_There are dozens of books about the dot.com boom and bust in Silicon Valley. But I know only one about similar events in the UK: Bringing Nothing To The Party by Paul Carr.

The book tells tales of now-legendary internet entrepreneurs, like Alex Tew (of the MillionDollarHomepage.com) and Firebox.com founder Michael Smith, as well as the disasterous IPO of Carr’s own dot.com flameout, KudoCities.

If you enjoyed Boo Hoo et al, I highly recommended it.
