If you’ve ever wondered how a startup works or what the world of venture capital really looks likes or how a visionary leader guides other down a dark or dangerous path or even what true unbridled excess looks like, you should read this book. But you should especially read it if you followed the story of the office coworking company WeWork and suspect that the reality was even worse than what was conveyed in the media. It was. This is another great example where journalists who covered the story, in this case two Wall Street Journal reporters, used their reporting as the basis for a longer narrative. If you enjoyed Bad Blood, the story of Theranos and Elizabeth Holmes, read this too. They should sit next to each other on your shelf.
