Disrupted: My Misadventure in the Startup Bubble

By Daniel Lyons


This is a Startup story with a twist. Instead of being written by one of a Startup Founder, it’s told from the perspective of an employee hired by a well known Marketing-Tech company.

Daniel Lyons paints a picture of a world where Startup madness is in full swing, staff vanish without warning and allegations of illegal activity are levelled. It’s a fly on the wall expose that delivers page turning entertainment and more than a few lessons in what questionable ethics might look like. Disrupted is a book that is sure to take only a couple of days to chomp through.
