One-time college surfing buddies navigate the lust, trust, boom and bust of an Internet startup. Some will catch a wave and ride it all the way to megabucks. Others will end up tombstoning. Brainy entrepreneur Fred Hanson trusts his life to Tom Rey - until Tom comes to work in his blockbuster dotcom. Jealous competitors, desperate lawyers and a predatory financial reporter turn them against one another just as they face the lip, that crucial spot where an ocean swell ends and a wave begins. ON THE LIP is a head-on collision involving college friendship, a 'can't miss' Internet startup and a desperate play by seedy Washington power brokers ...a spellbinding peek inside an overnight tech sensation, not unlike Google or Facebook. -- Dennis Wholey, NEW YORK TIMES BEST-SELLING AUTHOR and host of the acclaimed television series, THIS IS AMERICA.
