Smart investors, esteemed analysts, and the business press found themselves asking:
- Who knew people wouldn't rush out to trade in their U.S. dollars for a virtual currency called Flooz?
- Who knew people wouldn't blow all their Flooz on a used car from the guys at iMotors.com?
- And who needed a used car from iMotors.com when they could just sit at home and have 40-lb. bags of dog food delivered to them by a sock puppet?
F'd Companies captures the waste, greed, and human stupidity of more than 100 dot-com companies. Written in Philip J. Kaplan's popular, cynical style, these profiles are filled with colorful anecdotes, factoids, and information unavailable anywhere else. Together they form a gleeful encyclopedia of how not to run a business. They also capture a truly remarkable period of history.
F'd Companies is required reading for everyone involved in the "new economy" -- assuming your severance check can cover the cost.
