In Conversation with Mike Isaac on January 15
January 15, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pmFree – $15
Join the New York Press Club for a conversation with award-winning journalist and author Mike Isaac.
The discussion will be moderated by Melody Hahm, West Coast correspondent for Yahoo! Finance.
Mike Isaac is a technology reporter at the New York Times whose Uber coverage won the Gerald Loeb Award for distinguished business reporting. He writes frequently about Uber, Facebook, and other Silicon Valley giants for the Times, and appears often on CNBC and MSNBC.
Based on hundreds of interviews with current and former Uber employees, along with previously unpublished documents, SUPER PUMPED is a page-turning story of ambition and deception, obscene wealth, and bad behavior that explores how blistering technological and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 twelve-month periods in American corporate history.
“The tale of Uber, the queen of the so-called ‘unicorns,’ is a parable about power—and the lengths to which some startup founders will go to amass it and hold onto it. Aside from being a delicious read, Mike Isaac’s account is also teeming with new revelations that will shock and outrage you.”
—John Carreyrou, author of Bad Blood
“A gripping, masterfully reported book that offers an essential window into what can go wrong with Silicon Valley’s growth-at-any-cost culture.”
—Sheelah Kolhatkar, author of Black Edge
Join us for pizza and beverages at 6:30 p.m., a conversation with Mike Isaac starting at 7 p.m. and an opportunity to purchase your copy of Super Pumped and have it autographed by the author.
