Disrupted: My Misadventure in the Start-Up Bubble

Dan Lyons, laid off from his job as a satirist, joins a hot tech startup in Boston – Hubspot. He doesn’t like it. He finds much of it ridiculous. Most of his tone is ridiculing. It’s entertainment. A bit crude at times. Mixed with his entertaining view, some of it seems legitimately painful. There was apparently evidence at Hubspot of bad leadership, manipulation, and ill treatment of people.
