9781941758151: The Show

"An eye-opening tale of all the money, sex and drugs washing through the tech world, from someone who lived it." ― Jim Edwards, Editor-in-Chief, Business Insider UK
Think of the greatest tech company in the world. Imagine getting a job there. Picture the perks: free gourmet food, free booze, a gym, a swimming pool, and a holiday bonus . . . every month. Brilliant coworkers. No dress code. Great parties. More money. Everyone’s admiration.
Vic is just like any other Harvard grad out there, except that he just scored a job at tech empire SHOW. But in the hunt for success and happiness, he falls into a shady world of sex, drugs, and swindle. The young tech elites are just as greedy as Wall Street bankers, but all the more cunning. Meanwhile, an office affair is brewing, and his father’s absence adds to Vic’s decline.
The darker, drug-fueled parallel to Dave Eggers’ The Circle, Filip Syta's debut novel, The Show, offers a raw glimpse into the dangerous evolution of the tech world.

About the Author:

Filip Syta is a former Google employee who left the tech world to write books and his debut literary novel tells you why - in a satirical, true and unsavory tale, revealing the savagery beneath the shiny veneer of Silicon Valley. 

Syta was born and raised in Stockholm, Sweden. In 2011, he graduated with a master's degree in entrepreneurship from Lund University, Lund, Sweden. He aspires to make readers identify the truly important things in life.
