Synopsis

Jerry Yang by Paul Kupperberg

Growing up in Taipei, Taiwan, Jerry Yang was a bright child who always asked the question 'Why?' When he was 10 years old, his widowed mother, a university professor, moved the family to California, and a remarkable new life began for her sons. While at Stanford University, Yang met fellow student David Filo and created Jerry and David's Guide to the World Wide Web. This list of their favorite Web sites would one day become the Internet search engine giant Yahoo! In the years since, Yahoo! has been recognized as one of the most widely used search engines and Internet portals in the world. As the company's 'Chief Yahoo', Yang has remained at the forefront of Internet technology for more a decade and has ridden the ups and downs of the Internet's booms and busts.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

It’s so easy to find the right book for your child. Such an easy-to-use, yet in-depth website. 100% reliable.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
