Chaos Monkeys is a raw, witty and brutally candid book that provides a glimpse into the working world at Facebook and Twitter in their quest for world domination. Okay, that’s an exaggeration, but after reading the book, you can’t help but wonder how much truth there might be to that. It tells the sometimes brutal truth of the blood thirsty drive to succeed at these Silicon Valley Tech Start Ups.
Martinez describes Facebook as the Roman Empire, and Mark Zuckerberg as the strong Emperor with a lot of power, who’s trying to control the world.
It’s a great book to read if you’re considering starting your own company but not quite sure what it actually takes. According to entrepreneur, former Facebook exec, and author Garcia Martinez, success is a combination of a whole lot of luck and a really great pitch. There’s a lot of helpful advice and a heavy dose of reality to help you navigate your entrepreneurial decisions.
