Publisher's Summary

How do fledgling companies make it from idea to multimillion-dollar Internet IPOs? Steve Harmon, whom CBS MarketWatch calls one of Wall Street's top Internet stock analysts, shows how an innovator can convert sparks of imagination into a money-making Internet business.
Harmon describes the Internet environment as "zero gravity", a place where information, communication, and wealth flow up, down, and sideways as in an astronaut's weightless environment. The result is nanosecond commerce - easy, inexpensive, customized - with a market not bound by locale or time.
In this book, Harmon introduces you to leading entrepreneurs and venture capitalists who describe how they built companies in cyberspace. From finding funding to structuring your financing, he provides myriad valuable resources to help you along the way.

What the Critics Say

"The author's writing is edgy enough to be entertaining and practical enough to deliver insights to the average investor or student of the equities markets." (AudioFile)
"This is about as complete a manual as an entry-level entrepreneur could hope for....[Harmon] offers inspirational stories of the true VC successes and includes interviews with the VCs themselves, letting them say in their own words how they pick the winners, and how you can become one of them." (Amazon.com review)

Half the book is reading out tables

What would have made Zero Gravity better?

I listen to audio books all the time and really enjoy them. However, I couldn't believe this one read out countless tables to me! The introduction was fine but most of the book was made up by the reading out of tables. Surely there is a better way to get the point across? Maybe the author could have explained and commented on their meaning instead.
