"A well-executed, gripping, fast-paced novel about the nuances of the publishing world... I was consistently at the edge of my seat until the very last page. This type of interrogation of the coopting of culture and stories for capital gain is well-received."
Business Leaders & Thinkers
"This is the gold standard for business books regarding competition and market dynamics that helps both insurgents and incumbents think about market structures, pricing and technology."
Journalists & Wonks
"When I became a full-fledged Steely Dan fan in my 20s, I found the depth of care and attention in Fagen and Becker’s music deeply moving, even romantic. If the lyrics were often cynical, everything else felt like the opposite... I’m glad to know I have new company."

"I really related to the story—in fact, it reminded me a lot of my relationship with Paul Allen and our work together at Microsoft. Tomorrow was one of the biggest books of last year, and it’s easy to see why. Zevin is a great writer who makes you care deeply about her characters."
Climate Experts & Activists
"I'll be honest: I read this because Lemony Snicket recommended it in an interview, when I was in middle school. This book is about a militia of Italian bears, which is a metaphor for something. But I'm there for bears with guns."

Tech Writers and Journalists
"I just started “Red Team Blues,” and I can’t put it down... This book is a cryptocurrency techno-thriller, and it’s full of money laundering, tax havens, lawyers for the 1 percent, organized crime and murders, hacking and open source intelligence, and so much more."
"Chain Gang All-Stars is a harrowing, bloody… read; in the same stroke, it has the emotional complexities and the interior worlds of its characters. This novel offers a powerful commentary on celebrity, capitalism, racism, and the shameful legacies of mass incarceration."
I haven’t read tons of sci fi, but the best I’ve read about an escaping malevolent Super Intelligent AI is “A Fire Upon the Deep” by Vernor Vinge. The part where it escapes is terrifying, quite frankly. Highly recommended.

Voices in the Food World
"This book is cool because it tells you every ingredient that goes with any other... I also use it for developing recipes; say I want to do something with fava beans or these herbs or those cheeses—this book will tell me what goes well with each one. It’s a great starting point."
