UNCANNY VALLEY: A Memoir by Anna Wiener

From stuck, broke, and looking for meaning, to working at a big-data startup in Silicon Valley, Anna Wiener now tells her story as a woman in Silicon Valley’s startup culture. “Equal parts bildungsroman and insider report, this book reveals not just excesses of the tech-startup landscape, but also the Faustian bargains and hidden political agendas embedded in the so-called ‘inspiration culture’ underlying a too-powerful industry. A funny, highly informative, and terrifying read.”–Kirkus Reviews, starred review
