Inhaltsangabe

A New York Times technology correspondent presents the dramatic rise and fall of Uber, set against the rapid upheaval in Silicon Valley during the mobile era. 

In June 2017, Travis Kalanick, the hard-charging CEO of Uber, was ousted in a boardroom coup that capped a brutal year for the transportation giant. Uber had catapulted to the top of the tech world yet for many came to symbolize everything wrong with Silicon Valley. In the tradition of Brad Stone’s Everything Store and John Carreyrou’s Bad Blood, award-winning investigative reporter Mike Isaac’s Super Pumped delivers a gripping account of Uber’s rapid rise, its pitched battles with taxi unions and drivers, the company’s toxic internal culture and the bare-knuckle tactics it devised to overcome obstacles in its quest for dominance. 

Based on hundreds of interviews with current and former Uber employees, along with previously unpublished documents, Super Pumped is a pause-resisting story of ambition and deception, obscene wealth and bad behavior that explores how blistering technological and financial innovation culminated in one of the most catastrophic 12-month periods in American corporate history.

Crazy story

As a consumer and user I wasn't aware about the crazy behind the curtain story. Unbelievable what happened. Well researched. I didn't like the reader because it was for me over the top. Yes the story is written very blunt, but this is emphasised by the performance

Informative Story but too much political ranting

The story is interesting for anyone interested in tech startups. The author seems to be the anti-democratic leftist common in American journalism. As a fun drinking game, listen to the book and take a shot every time he complains about "white male twenty-somethings".The impotent rage towards Trump is entertaining at first, but takes up too much time. The book could be hours shorter if the propaganda was relegated to its own book.
