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.
Does he generalize a lot? - yes.
Is he over the top? - yes.
Given that, this book is a must read if you are above 40 and work in the IT industry, you have interviewed for an unicorn startup, did very well and failed to secure a job (hint: you are too old), work for an unicorn startup or just curious about Silicon Valley.
This book is the Liar's Poker for the startup industry. It raises very important points which can not and should not be ignored.
I read Dharmesh's response to the book here: [...]
This does not address the question that Dan primarily wants answered, what did Cranium do that warranted a FBI investigation and led to Cranium being fired? How has Dan Lyons' privacy been compromised?
The fact that a "C" level executive of a publicly traded company can do something like this to an ex-employee and get away with it is shocking.
Recommend the book. It's clearly biased against HubSpot and based on one person's experience, but the broader questions that are raised about the startup industry can not be ignored.
