The panic pursuit of happiness, 1. August 2000
It is an astounding tale on many levels. First- how could anybody read this book and not come away thinking that Jim Clark is a complete fool? This man let an ego-book about his life be written which gives him the attention span of a toddler. Then the author has the gall to tells us that Jim likes it so much that he/we will all be invited along for the next episode. Now we are expected to believe that this man is a "True Hero Of The Internet Economy"- all because he wanted many millions to build a bigger yacht.
As one who has been in the software business as well as an offshore sailor, I find every chapter to be filled with the most incredulous disregard for Planning Ahead. Jim Clark has had more good luck in one week than most us will have in a lifetime. I found the descriptions of many events to be light on facts, so don't go looking for many details here. It is a very light read- on par with the attention span of it's subject.
