review:
Definitely scathing! This book confirmed and resonated with my experience living in SF during the first web boom, and Pein’s healthily cynical take is refreshing and entertaining. I’m someone else who lived through it but didn’t drink the koolaid, and trust me, be very afraid of Silicon Valley.
