A New York Times Book Review Editor’s Choice

“If you want to understand modern-day Silicon Valley, you need to read this book.” —John Carreyrou, New York Times best-selling author of Bad Blood

Hailed as the definitive book on Uber and Silicon Valley, Super Pumped is an epic story of ambition and deception, obscene wealth, and bad behavior that explores how blistering technological and financial innovation culminated in one of the most catastrophic twelve-month periods in American corporate history.

Backed by billions in venture capital dollars and led by a brash and ambitious founder, Uber promised to revolutionize the way we move people and goods through the world. What followed would become a corporate cautionary tale about the perils of startup culture and a vivid example of how blind worship of startup founders can go wildly wrong.

Author did a great job detailing the rise of Uber.

Fantastic read

A thoroughly enjoyable book

Trekekcentric ,

Unethical

It would have been an excellent business book to read; however, when describing politicians, it showed Michael Issac as an unprofessional writer and his true unethical character.
