“The definitive inside story of WeWork, its audacious founder, and what its epic unraveling says about a financial system drunk on the elixir of Silicon Valley innovation-from the Wall Street Journal correspondents whose scoop-filled reporting hastened the company’s downfall.”

This month I’m reviewing a shocking and hilarious exposé on the downfall of WeWork and its eccentric founder Adam Neumann by Eliot Brown and Maureen Farrell. Learn how far one man was able to take a moderately profitable office space company and grow it far beyond its bounds based on speculation, endless investor money, ignoring profitability, and the cult of personality. If you have already read John Carreyrou’s Bad Blood on the implosion of Theranos and want another tale of Silicon Valley corruption, check out my book talk below.
