Valley Boy: The Education of Tom Perkins
—By Tom Perkins (Gotham Books)
Outside tech's clubby confines, Perkins, a Silicon Valley venture capitalist, is best known for kicking open last year's boardroom leak scandal at Hewlett-Packard. In his memoir, he reveals there is more to the man, offering a chummy glimpse inside the playground of big money, from Genentech to the San Francisco Ballet, where he details his struggles in the 1980s with, ironically, a boardroom leaker.
