DISRUPTED: My Misadventure in the Start-Up Bubble

NEW YORK TIMES BEST-SELLER

For twenty-five years Dan Lyons was a magazine writer at the top of his profession – until one Friday morning when his editor at Newsweek told him that his job as technology editor no longer existed. HubSpot, a Boston tech startup with a kooky culture, offered Dan a pile of stock options and gave him the vague title of “marketing fellow.” What could possibly go wrong? In a word, everything.

Mixed in with Dan’s uproarious tale of a job from hell is a trenchant analysis of startup culture and a poignant, painfully honest account of being middle-aged and struggling to pursue personal reinvention. Disrupted has been hailed by critics as a book that will make you laugh, but also will make you think.

“The best book about Silicon Valley today.”
– Los Angeles Times
