Chaos Monkeys: A Silicon Valley Adventure

Mar 13, 2017

11:00am – 12:00pm CT

After stints on Wall Street and as CEO of his own Y Combinator startup, García Martínez joined Facebook’s nascent advertising team, turning its users’ data into profit for COO Sheryl Sandberg and chairman and CEO Mark “Zuck” Zuckerberg. He also fathered two children with a woman he barely knew, committed lewd acts and brewed illegal beer on the Facebook campus (accidentally flooding Zuckerberg's desk), lived on a sailboat, raced sport cars on the 101, and enthusiastically pursued the life of an overpaid Silicon Valley wastrel.

His new book 'Chaos Monkeys' is an unfiltered memoir of life inside the Silicon Valley machine, with every character named and underhanded maneuver revealed.
