PDF EBook by Jeff Goodell

EBook Description

My family felt more deeply than most the jarring effects of the social upheaval in the valley. Sunnyvale PDF EBook Until the late 1970s, we had been relatively happy... Then as the PC industry exploded and the valley started to heat up, my family began to fall apart. In this clear- PDFeyed, moving, and insightful memoir, journalist Jeff Goodell tells the story of a family growing up and falling apart in a town called Sunnyvale, in a place originally named "Valley of Heart's Delight" — what we now call Silicon Valley. As this sleepy locale becomes the hotbed of the tech explosion and a neocapitalist mecca, there is similar upheaval among the members of the Goodell family: Jeff's emotionally distant grandfather, a Westinghouse ur-geek who began working there in the 50s; download; Jeff's quietly disillusioned father, who worked with earth and plants in a landscape increasingly dominated by circuitry; a mother trying to start over at mid-life; and a brother caught between expectations and dreams, spinning out spectacularly in a hail of drugs and alcohol. This is a unique and compelling family story that is also a resonant document of our age. Like this book?
