What does it take to get rich in a boom? How did someone like OzEmail founder Sean Howard go from sleeping on the floor in working-class Melbourne to making $120 million? In almost every case, the people that made big dollars in the high-tech and Internet boom had three things in common: they saw it coming early, they built high-growth companies using other people's money and they knew when to get out or sell down. Through in-depth coverage of the entrepreneurs who, despite their sometimes very public problems, walked away with serious loot - like Tracey Ellery and Evan Thornley at LookSmart, the Tudehope brothers at Macquarie Corporate Telecommunications, Jodee Rich at One.Tel and Chris O'Hanlon at Spike - this book takes you deep inside the boom and delivers valuable lessons for success. Controversially, it also concludes that Australia's future depends on people like them.
