Product description


Fascinating, thought-provoking, hilarious and sometimes harrowing. ― Gretchen Rubin, bestselling author of The Happiness Project

A lively and spirited takedown... Its core argument is surely irrefutable. ― Guardian

Entertaining ― The Economist

Lyons is very funny journalist... Much of his polemic rings true. ― FT

Lab Rats defies easy description. I sputtered laughing and choked crying (literally, not figuratively) as I read it. Yes, Lyons gives Silicon Valley the thrashing that it, alas, largely deserves. But in the final third of the book, he offers us an effectively illustrated way out - an approach to work and business that puts people first. ― Tom Peters, bestselling author of In Search of Excellence

Entertaining... A worthwhile and disturbing read. ― Sunday Business Post

Funny and frightening. ― The Sunday Post

Skewering corporate jargon, management science and, worst of all, enforced fun, Lyons' waggish jeremiad lays out how the world of work has changed for the worse. ― Tatler

Laugh-out-loud funny ― Newsweek on DISRUPTED

About the Author

Dan Lyons is an author, journalist, and screenwriter. He has co-produced and written for the HBO series Silicon Valley, was technology editor at Newsweek and was the creator of the groundbreaking viral blog 'The Secret Diary of Steve Jobs' (AKA 'Fake Steve Jobs').
