Today he joins us to discuss his new book (which is great!) called "A People's History of Silicon Valley" which explores a popular 'history from below' approach to the growth of the global tech giants. It's a quick, great read that we can't recommend enough. The book is published by Eyewear Publishing and is available here: https://us-eyewearpublishing.glopalstore.com/products/a-peoples-history-of-silicon-valley
