    DescriptionSince the 1980s, Silicon Valley has been the site of what its premier venture capitalist John Doerr calls "the largest legal creation of wealth in the history of the planet", due to the revolutionary innovations of the PC and the Internet. The story of these companies and the complex and flagrantly colourful men behind them is one of pioneers, entreneurial warriors and technical wizzards such as Bill Gates of Microsoft, Andy Grove of Intel, Scott McNealy of Sun Microsystems and Jim Clark of Netscape. It is a story filled with drama and intrigue as the takeover of Netscape by AOL and their alliance with Sun became the first Internet mega-merger, while the struggle between Microsoft and the rest of the Valley to control the industry being spawned by the Internet, and the subsequent trial of Microsoft under anti-trust laws, is one of the most important and gripping business sagas of the post-war world.
