If you could sum up Broad Band in three words, what would they be?
Good historical review
What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?
Great to hear all the stories of how things started.
Any additional comments?
My only issue with this book is that it sounded like the author thought she was a great writer, and the wording and tonality detracted sometimes from the story/history. Given that, it was a fabulous book, and since I am 68 and a child of Silicon Valley history, it was wonderful to hear the women's side of the story. I heard an interview with her on NPR and bought the book, and it seemed like it was going to be another Hidden Figures movie, which I would have liked. But it is stories about the incredible women who did various parts of computer and Internet discovery over the last 50 years, which I did like! But, as I say, sometimes the author gets too involved in how well she thinks she can elocute.
