    1. This book is being marketed as a girl power, The Devil Wears Prada read alike that is set in the world of Silicon Valley startups This is inaccurate The author narrator it s clear that they are one and the same fawns incessantly over Steve Jobs, Elon Musk, and other of her straight white male mentors Their unprofessional and verbally abusive behavior, and often sexist and racist comments are passed off as funny in a boys will be boys sort of way, and their incredible genius remarked upon constan [...]

    4. It was good I would recommend it as a decent book but I wouldn t be screaming to people to buy it Another review mentioned it still shows a woman in that fawning over the straight white man in power instead of just being a strong female role model I think they re right but i can imagine it s also tough to be able to write something like that and appeal to the masses or at least people who read outside the Women s studies genre I think I laughed out loud once or twice, but for the most part it wa [...]

    5.
