Review

An NPR Best Book of the Year - A Business Insider Top 20 Business Book of the Year - An Inc. Best Book of the Year for Entrepreneurs and Small Business Owners--

"[García Martínez] is, by his own account, a dissolute character.... He is nonetheless, by the end of his account, a winning antihero, a rebel against Silicon Valley's culture of nonconformist conformity.... The reader can't help rooting for him."--Jacob Weisberg, New York Review of Books

"Romps through Martínez's wild trajectory from Wall Streeter to pre-IPO Facebook employee, with the dramatic sale of his Y Combinator-backed ad-tech startup (to Twitter) in between."--Jillian D'Onfirio Business Insider

"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

"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

"[Garcia Martinez] reads like a philosopher and historian, the exact travel guide you'd want to walk you through the inner workings of Facebook. His tell-all memoir is the best writing out there on one of the world's most powerful companies. And he even manages to make the ins and outs of online advertising fascinating."--Aarti Shahanti, npr.org

"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

"Brilliant."--Financial Times

"If you're in a startup or even plan to sue one, Chaos Monkeys is the book to read."--John Biggs, TechCrunch

"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

"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."--New York Times Book Review

"Reckless and rollicking... perceptive and funny and brave.... The resulting view of the Valley's craziness, self-importance and greed isn't pretty. But it's one that most of us have never seen before and aren't likely to forget."--Washington Post

"This gossipy insider account from the former Twitter adviser, Facebook product manager, and start-up CEO dishes dirt while also explaining the ins and outs of Silicon Valley."--Neal Wyatt, Library Journal

"This year's best non-business book about business.... Garcia Martinez is a real writer.... A classic tale, well told."--Techcrunch

"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 --This text refers to the paperback edition.
