Book Review -- "eboys" -- Venture Capital

I just finished reading the book "eboys" about Benchmark Capital during the go-go Internet crazy days. It was a great walk through of some of Benchmark's most noteable investments including ebay, Webvan, Priceline,, and others. In the last few chapters, a new partner is brought into the group, Bill Gurley, who now writes a great blog called "Bill Gurley's Above the Crowd" about the economics of investing in technology. Note: I don't see any new posting by Bill in the last few months, but there is still some great stuff there.

The book is very easy to read and provides a great introduction to the VC world including the language, behavior, and thought processes that VCs go through in order to make an investment decision. It would be a great read for any entrepreneur that is considering taking in Venture Capital.
