Book Review: Chaos Monkeys – Obscene Fortune and Random Failure in Silicon Valley

This is a book of two tales.  The first one, the adventure of a Silicon Valley entrepreneur-buccaneer’s no-holds-barred battle to survive and cash out, was  fascinating.   The second, about life as a Facebook corporate drone…not so much.  The Zuckerberg brand of palace intrigue is, really, not so unique and special in the annals of American Corporate Manifest Destiny. I have to say, though, that the author’s Afterward—an update written after Antonio’s “departure” from Facebook and the original publication of Chaos Monkeys—is a great essay on current events involving the social media giant.  (4 of 5 stars for the first half; 3 of 5 stars for the second half; 5 of 5 stars for the update)
