Quite rarely honest personal inside view of the industry. The guy hasn't gone far up but picked up and shared some interesting observations, thoughts and insights. The content is a bit over-bloated with lyrical descriptions and observations etc.

The story of leaving Facebook is cool smiley The guy got few millions from his ordeal with Facebook and still kept a badge claiming he lost it, to get discounts in Apple stores laugh 

Four stars only for content being a bit bloated with often unnecessary and distracting information. Overall the book is certainly worth reading.
