5.0 de 5 estrelas Sobering, Shocking and Hilarious Look at a Utopian Hellhole Rings True on Every Page 9 de abril de 2016
Por Charlie White - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: eBook Kindle Compra verificada
This book affected me at a profound level. I was the oldest employee at various startups for a decade, and Dan Lyons accurately described the absurdity and frustration I encountered at all of them. He crafted his story so well that I felt transported back to that special hell of a fifty-something writer toiling away for years in a frat-house sweatshop with a "team" of ill-prepared (yet oh-so-special) snowflakes.

If you find yourself considering employment at a similar company, and if you're "old" (over 40 and certainly over 50), please read this book before you sign anything or accept any job offers. It's a cautionary tale that is the most perfect description of the current startup "culture" I've ever read. It made my blood boil while reading it, and at the same time I found myself laughing out loud throughout.

The book is a remarkable achievement, giving both prospective employees and investors a razor-sharp look inside a hellhole that seems so pleasant from its exterior. I loved this book and hope all my former, present and future colleagues take the time to read it.

5.0 de 5 estrelas Wildly entertaining AND important 5 de abril de 2016
Por Social Science Reader - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa dura
Disrupted not only wildly entertains; it also sheds light on some troubling issues in the startup and tech cultures.

Entertainment: Disrupted caused me to laugh out loud more often than any other book has ever caused me to laugh out loud. Would you expect less from a writer for the TV show Silicon Valley? Reading Disrupted is like binge-watching SV, only this company is a REAL place, which makes it even better.

Important social issues: Disrupted also raises a couple of troubling issues that surely extend far beyond the culture of this one company. The first is what appears to be a false promise of meaningful work to young people who desperately want to be doing meaningful work, but who are really just making a couple of people very, very wealthy. There's a smoke-and-mirrors quality to the ways in which employees are recruited, trained, treated, and then "graduated" (Hubspot's term for "fired"). They're told that the work they'll be doing is changing the world (when really what they're doing is online advertising), that Hubspot is more selective than Harvard (when this is actually a severe distortion of the data), and so on. The perks used to attract employees include an 'awesome!!!' candy wall, shower pods, beer, nerf gun battles, etc. You quickly get the sense that the work is empty, meaningless, even soulless -- and that what it's really about is making a couple of guys very, very rich (which I would be okay with IF the work truly were meaningful and IF the employees truly were being treated as individual humans, not as hypnotized sheep.)

Second, Dan is brave enough to bring up another important issue in startup culture: ageism. Older people are seen as having nothing to contribute. The age discrimination is actually shockingly overt. Imagine saying, "I want to run a company that really attracts people with blue eyes, because people with brown eyes just aren't creative." You'd (probably) never say something like that. But people who run this company openly say that about young people versus older people. I'm glad Dan is talking about it, because someone needed to start that conversation.

5.0 de 5 estrelas This is exactly like the start up i most recently worked for 5 de abril de 2016
Por sixhose - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: eBook Kindle Compra verificada
This is the funniest book I've read in years. Anyone who works (or has worked) at a start-up and who understands the forced corporate culture should read this. This is exactly like the start up i most recently worked for, even down to the names and titles. I was literally spitting out my tea at my desk while I laughed. Ever had to take a personality test and then get stuck in a room talking about it for 1/2 day while your work piles up? Dan talks about it and summarizes it perfectly.

5.0 de 5 estrelas The most binge-able non-fiction book I've read all year. 6 de abril de 2016
Por Maestro Y - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa dura Compra verificada
"The real story," writes Lyons, "is about two founders and a handful of investors who are about to extract more than $1 billion from public markets, and how they pulled it off". That may certainly be the real story, and a harrowing one at that, but, fortunately, that is not the story Lyons tells in this book.

No, the story you get here is the 21-st century Alice-in-Wonderland story. Wonderland here is a startup creaking at the seams while being dragged kicking and screaming towards IPO. HubSpot is shrouded in a veneer of company patriotism and moral superiority that would make a soviet apparatchik green with envy.

Told with the brand of dark humor that made Lyons' Fake Steve Jobs so irresistible, it's hard to blame anyone for being unable to put it down.

5.0 de 5 estrelas This Book Should Be a True Story Movie 18 de maio de 2016
Por The Doctor - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa dura Compra verificada
If you've ever considered investing in an IPO (Initial Public Offering) of a company about to go public, and it's a Technology StartUp, don't waste your money. I couldn't believe what I was reading of what really happens when a Tech company goes public. This book is non stop reading once you pick it up. At around 260 pages, easy to read font, you'll feel like you're right there at HubSpot with the author working at a playground. Kids are left to run a company started by adults for no other reason than to create a lot of hype that the company is important enough to go public. Companies without profits are being allowed to list on the stock exchange so venture capitalist and founders can get rich off of your money. There's absolutely no oversight or regulations to protect public investors who want to invest in an IPO and someone needs to go to prison as a result of whats happening. This book describes part two of "Wall Street Gone Wild" and it all starts in Silicon Valley where venture capital firms raise money from wealthy people to finance scams called Tech StartUps. When you hear that a company valuation is in the billions, don't believe it because it's just one opinion to create hype before a company goes public. There once was a time when a company had to show a profit before an IPO, "Not Anymore" as this book depicts. As an investor of a tech startup today, your money pays for beer, candy and play, all so a so called tech company can hire a bunch of kids who are willing to work cheap writing blogs and engaging in phone solicitations to sell a worthless cloud software product (SaaS) otherwise known as software as a service. Hold on to your money and read this this book is all I can say. As for HubSpot, the tech company where the author worked, it's losing borrowed money each day while it trades on the stock market, yet analyst tell you to buy it. In my opinion after reading this book, it's uncovered some things the tech industry and venture capitalist hoped the general public never knew.
