This is the definitive investigation of the most important business story of our time. In riveting style, Pride Before the Fall uncovers the truth behind the headlines -- including the hidden roles of Silicon Valley's most powerful men in shattering Microsoft's aura of invincibility and the climate of fear that held an industry in its thrall. Heilemann's groundbreaking book is based on extensive and exclusive interviews with Bill Gates and his second-in-command at Microsoft, Steve Ballmer; the Justice Department's then-assistant attorney general Joel Klein; chief government counsel David Boies; Intel chairman Andy Grove and other leading high-tech executives; and scores of lesser-known but pivotal players. Heilemann details exactly how the high-tech kingpins whose companies Gates tried to destroy or strong-arm (Netscape, Apple, Sun Microsystems, even Intel) worked behind the scenes to help the government bring Microsoft down. And he explores the lasting damage that the trial has inflicted on the first great empire of the new economy.
