A TRUCK FULL OF MONEY
Tracy Kidder's new book is the story of an American entrepreneur. Paul English was a restless, rebellious working class boy who saw his destiny the first time he saw a computer, and discovered in hmself not only a native affinity with the Internet, but a talent for putting together teams of creative people. Eventually he co-founds the travel website Kayak.com and makes, as a friend predicted early on, "A truck full of money" but only wants to give it away. Here is a portrait of a man who struggles with mood, who inspires intense loyalty, and who is amazingly free from greed.
Tracy Kidder is the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Soul of a New Machine, as well as House, Among Schoolchildren, Home Town, Mountains Beyond Mountains, and Strength in What Remains. He lives in the Valley.
