Watch the Video: NYPC Speakers Series: The Cult of We Authors discuss WeWork, Adam Neumann and the Great Startup Delusion

Join the New York Press Club’s virtual speaker series with The Cult of We: WeWork, Adam Neumann and the Great Startup Delusion authors Maureen Farrell and Eliot Brown.


The Cult of We is a Wall Street Journal bestseller and was longlisted for the Financial Times and McKinsey Business Book of the Year award. It is the definitive inside story of WeWork, its audacious founder, and what its epic unraveling says about a financial system drunk on the elixir of Silicon Valley innovation—from the Wall Street Journal correspondents (recently featured in the WeWork Hulu documentary) whose scoop-filled reporting hastened the company’s downfall.

The conversation will be moderated by Barron’s reporter Carleton English.

Maureen Farrell has been a reporter at The Wall Street Journal since 2013. She previously worked at Forbes, Debtwire, and Mergermarket. She lives in Brooklyn with her husband and two daughters.
