The Man Behind the Microchip: Robert Noyce and the Invention of Silicon Valley The Man Behind the Microchip: Robert Noyce and the Invention of Silicon Valley

by Leslie Berlin

Book Reviews

"Leslie Berlin does an excellent job of capturing the Bob Noyce I knew: part small-town boy, part big-time genius and always a wonderful friend and citizen." --Warren E. Buffett, Chairman, Berkshire Hathaway, Inc.

"Bob Noyce's contributions to the development of the semiconductor industry go well beyond his inventions. He was industry spokesman, visionary, and leading entrepreneur. But this well written book does more than just chronicle his many contributions; it is a window into his complex and charming personality." --Gordon E. Moore, co-founder of Intel Corporation

"At last, the absorbing story of the most important figure in history of the semiconductor industry! Meticulously researched, The Man Behind the Microchip is so engagingly narrated that you don't realize how much business and technology you are learning along the way." --William Aspray, Rudy Professor of Informatics, Indiana University

"At the white-hot epicenter of the digital revolution was Robert Noyce. Now, thanks to this incisive and astutely researched biography, Noyce will be forever listed among those inventor-entrepreneurs of the postwar era who functioned as the Johan Gutenbergs, the Alexander Graham Bells, the Guglielmo Marconis of our era." --Kevin Starr, University Professor of History, University of Southern California
