- Book 8 Lesson: For better or for worse, companies embody the neuroses of their founders https://t.co/w4Mc4YeHkJ
- @ianstarz I find I really get engrossed by books about tech fraud/over-exuberance, so the book about theranos, super pumped about uber, American kingpin about Silk Road, mastermind about Paul le roux. Classic disaster stories with fascinating central characters.
- @geneweingarten @MonicaHesse @LisaTaddeo @stepville Three books which each tell a slightly different and occasionally fucked up story about how capitalism is probably going to ruin us all, by @MikeIsaac @AdamChandler and David Wallace Wells https://t.co/OHuRjxWRrJ
- This observation was crystallized for me after reading Super Pumped and comparing to various broken cultures I've encountered in my career https://t.co/fsSabIdhDY
- Btw if you haven’t read Super Pumped it is a must read. Spent my 5 hour flight finishing it which tells you how gripping it is because I get super motion sick reading on planes and threw up as soon as I got off 🤣
- I was lukewarm about an Uber book but Super Pumped by Mike Isaac was excellent Couldn't put it down Finished entirely on my flight(s) to @wealthstackconf this morning Not only about Uber/Kalanick but also a history of Unicorns, apps & tech bro culture https://t.co/tE9VVJXjZP
- 'Super Pumped: The Battle for Uber' traces Travis Kalanick’s trajectory from floundering startup founder to the envy of Silicon Valley to the epitome of tech evil. And despite his much-publicized fall from grace, the book reveals jaw-dropping new lows. https://t.co/wlXvxrhZX9
- @Propllrhead @MikeIsaac 😂🥰🤗 https://t.co/U1knm8EjEd
- With @CaseyNewton, @karaswisher , and @MikeIsaac at the book launch party. Meaning...you should all buy this book. https://t.co/1dP1eaZhRY https://t.co/RkLewgWU21
Isaac delivers a gripping account of Uber's rapid rise, its pitched battles with taxi unions and drivers, the company's toxic internal culture, and the bare-knuckle tactics it devised to overcome obstacles in its quest for dominance.
