The new media writer and singer Claire Evans provides a spirited collection of thumbnail portraits of the women who contributed to the digital economy in the evolving history of the Internet. Sadly, as happens too often, a first-time author's first-time audiobook narration does not work well. While pleasant, Evans's voice is weak and lacks variation despite the varying content. The deeply human side of technology development is mined as the forefront of this effort. Those interested in technology will likely enjoy the slice of history, but one must wonder how much more enjoyable it might have been if a professional narrator had been given the opportunity to raise the audio performance level.
