Chaos Monkeys

Antonio Garcia Martinez

Billed as “an adrenaline-fuelled exposé of life inside the tech bubble”, Chaos Monkeys lays bare the secrets, power plays and lifestyle excesses of the visionaries, grunts, sociopaths, opportunists and money cowboys who are revolutionising our world.

Author Antonio García Martínez left Wall Street to make his fortune in Silicon Valley, becoming CEO of his own startup, before being poached by Facebook’s nascent advertising team. Here he turned users’ data into profit for COO Sheryl Sandberg and chairman and CEO Mark Zuckerberg. He then took his unique brand of entrepreneurial hyperactivity to rivals Twitter, enthusiastically pursuing the lifestyle of an overpaid Silicon Valley mercenary.
