Reviews

Lyons finds the right company, if only for the raw material that he, a seasoned satirist, spins into gold... But the book is not just a chronicle of the tech bubble's silly quirks... Lyons uses the lens of his growing disillusionment to focus on a broader critique of Silicon Valley. * Financial Times *
'Simultaneously hilarious and terrifying' * LA Times *

Wildly entertaining... Disrupted explores the ways in which many technology companies have come to fool the public and themselves. Lyons has injected a dose of sanity into a world gone mad.

-- Ashlee Vance, Sunday Times bestselling author of Elon Musk
'Laugh-out-loud funny.' * Newsweek *
Fun, compulsively readable and just might tell us something important about the hypocrisy and cult-like fervor inside today's technology giants. -- Brad Stone, Author of The Everything Store: Jeff Bezos and the Age of Amazon
Scathingly funny . . . Like the show Silicon Valley, Disrupted nails the workings of spastic, hypocritical, delusional tech culture. * New York Post *
'A hugely entertaining insider view of the vainglorious world of tech, yet it is also an important rumination on the values of our age.' * Irish Times *
'This humorous and well-crafted memoir is part of a proud literary tradition: the disgruntled ex-employee tell-all.' * Harvard Business Review *
Dan Lyons goes deep inside a company that uses terms like 'world class marketing thought leaders' to show us how ridiculous, wasteful, and infantile tech start-ups like this can be. And best of all, Lyons does this with his trademark pejorative and hilarious tone. -- Author of Hatching Twitter
