Who doesn't love a glimpse behind the facades of troubled Silicon Valley giants? In the tradition of Brad Stone’s Everything Store and John Carreyrou’s Bad Blood, award-winning investigative reporter Mike Isaac’s Super Pumped: The Battle for Uber delivers a gripping account of Uber’s rapid rise, its pitched battles with taxi unions and drivers, the company’s toxic internal culture, and the bare-knuckle tactics it devised to overcome obstacles in its quest for dominance. Roger McNamee's Zucked: Waking Up to the Facebook Catastrophe is the story of a noted tech venture capitalist, early mentor to Mark Zuckerberg, and Facebook investor, who woke up to the serious damage Facebook is doing to our society and set out to try to stop it. Moderated by The New Yorker's Anna Wiener. $25 adv / $30 door
