The Internet...it's a wild ride. High-flying Internet companies seem to operate their own set of rules -- outside the natural laws of gravity that apply to most businesses. It's an environment in which perception is more important than profits, and "mind share" is greater than market share. This is Zero Gravity, and it's what all Internet start-ups aspire to.

But how do garage entrepreneurs and Internet junkies make the transition from that first caffeine-induced idea to blockbuster IPO and instant-millionaire status? The answer is venture capital -- which has funded nearly every successful start-up.

This book by noted Internet stock analyst Steve Harmon provides an insider's edge and a savvy look inside the topsy-turvy culture of venture capital and Silicon Valley start-ups. It delivers valuable guidelines from top venture capitalists, such as John Doerr of Kleiner Perkins, Ann Winblad of Hummer Winblad, and Esther Dyson of EDVenture Holdings -- the leaders who make the rules in cyberspace.
