    The shocking and hilarious New York Times best-selling exposé of a new age of excess in Silicon Valley.

    Dan Lyons was technology editor at Newsweek for years, a magazine writer at the top of his profession. One Friday morning he received a phone call: his job no longer existed. Fifty years old, and with a wife and two young kids, Dan was unemployed and facing financial oblivion.

    Then an idea hit. Dan had long reported on Silicon Valley and the tech explosion. Why not join it? HubSpot, a Boston start-up, was flush with $100 million in venture capital. They offered Dan a pile of stock options for the nebulous role of 'marketing fellow'. What could possibly go wrong?

    What follows is a hilarious and excoriating account of Dan's time at the start-up and a revealing window onto the dysfunctional culture that prevails in a world flush with cash and devoid of experience. Filled with stories of meaningless jargon, teddy bears at meetings, push-up competitions and all-night parties, this uproarious tale is also a trenchant analysis of the dysfunctional start-up world, a de facto conspiracy between those who start companies and those who fund them. It is a world where bad ideas are rewarded with hefty investments, where companies blow money lavishing perks on their postcollegiate workforces, and where everybody is trying to hang on just long enough to cash out with a fortune.

    Zwei Geschichten die besser separat erzählt werden

    Es geht um 2 Geschichten:

    1. Die Geschichte von jemandem der sich mit einem Karrierewechsel schwer tut mit dem verbundenen Verlust an Status
    2. Bubble-Economics und die damit verbundenen Skurrilitäten

    Alle Themen die dort behandelt werden sind relevant (v.a. Altersdiskriminierung, Bubble-Economics oder Mobbing), werden aber überlagert durch die Emotionale Aufarbeitung des Autors was die Geschichte durch Nebenschauplätze, Rechtfertigungen und Anschuldigungen schlingern lässt.

    In Summe unterhaltsam und lehrreich für mich.
