Book: Disrupted: My Misadventure in the Start-Up Bubble

Author: Dan Lyons

Premise: After spending a large part of his career as the technology editor at Newsweek Magazine, Dan lands himself a job at a startup called HubSpot. This book is hilarious because Dan used to write a blog called The Secret Diary of Steve Jobs, which is largely a satirical account of what goes on in Silicon Valley. Disrupted reads as satire, but he claims that everything in the book is true. As someone who spent a decade working at a marketing software startup, this book made me laugh out loud, several times.
