Unusually frank and brutal narrative about the behind the scenes action at Twitter. If you think startups are all smiles and high-fives, I'd suggest you read this book.

@chudson was shocked to learn the details behind Ev being removed as CEO....and Fred Wilson's dismissal of him "he'd always been a terrible CEO, that he had no product sense, and that he never considered him a founder"

I read this in pretty much one sitting on my phone. Amazing story.

I'll throw in my vote for this as another fantastic audiobook! It's extremely well narrated and the story already being a silicon valley soap opera makes this a great listen. It's a fascinating tale, demonstrating some negatives of the Silicon Valley culture and telling a side of the story that is not well known.

This has been on my "to read" list for a while. I think I'll tackle it next.

I need to reference my kindle at home later, but what were some of your favorite parts of the book?
