Editorial Reviews

Review

“Incisive.... The most fun business book I have read this year.... Clearly there will be people who hate this book — which is probably one of the things that makes it such a great read.”
— Andrew Ross Sorkin, New York Times

“Eye-popping.”
Vanity Fair

“There are some books that are just too good to miss.... In his insider-tells-all book, García Martínez discusses everything from goofy stories to cultural secrets about some of the country’s most powerful and influential businesses.”
Atlantic

“Michael Lewis was never a top Wall Street bond salesman, but in Liar’s Poker he captured an era. Chaos Monkeys aims to do the same for Silicon Valley, and bracingly succeeds.”
— David Streitfeld, New York Times Book Review

“Unlike most founding narratives that flow out of the Valley, Chaos Monkeys dives into the unburnished, day-to-day realities: the frantic pivots, the enthusiastic ass-kissing, the excruciating internal politics.... [García] can be rude, but he’s shrewd, too.”
Bloomberg Businessweek

“An irresistible and indispensable 360-degree guide to the new technology establishment.... A must-read.”
— Jonathan A. Knee, New York Times

“An unvarnished account… of Silicon Valley.”
CBS This Morning

“Traces the evolution of social media and online marketing and reveals how it’s become a part of our daily lives and how it will affect our future.”
— Leonard Lopate, WNYC
