Silicon Valley guy handbook. (book reviews)

Silicon Valley Guy Handbook

Two things led us to believe this ought to be a good book: first, it is modelled after the Preppie Handbook (a funny book), and second, it is published by Avon who just did the enormously successful (and funny) Items From Our Catalog. We were wrong. Silicon Valley Guy is a total yawn from cover to cover. It doesn't have one single "heh, heh' item or "in' joke. As Gene Shalit once said, "The author has committed ho-humicide with his typewriter.' Pass this one by. If you receive this book as a gift, the person who gave it to you is your enemy; give it back. Yawn . . .
