Dan Lyons was a tech journalist at the top of his profession. But one morning, he heard that his job at Newsweek magazine no longer existed. At the age of fifty, Dan was unemployed and facing financial oblivion. Then an idea hit. Why not join the world he reported on?
What follows is an excoriating and hilarious account of Dan's time at tech start-up HubSpot, and a revealing window onto a dysfunctional culture 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 is a world where bad ideas are rewarded with hefty investments; where sexism and ageism is rife; and where everybody is trying to hang on just long enough to cash out with a fortune.
