    I'm halfway through this book, but had to give it a top rating.

    Through thomas dolby's candid descriptions, the reader gets a glimpse into the creepy manipulations of (a) various music a&r types (b) pop stars like michael jackson as well as (c) tech titans like paul allen and bill gates.

    Thomas dolby is the accidental hero of the book who escapes (relatively) unharmed in the end.

    Otherwise this is a gem of a book, and should appeal not only to fans of his music, but to people curious about the inner workings of the music industry since the days of '80s synth pop.

    A thoroughly recommended read, even if there was practically no way this book could really fail for me.

    Part tell-all autobiography of the 80's new wave uk music scene, part history of synthesizers and electronic music from one of its founders, part warts-and-all history of the dot com craze and software entrepreneurs in their earliest days, part small business tutorial, and all inspriational screed on music, technology, family, and the human spirit within the machine.

    Speed of sound is everything a geek, a musician, a small business pioneer, or any combination thereof could ever want in a book.
