Disrupted by Dan Lyons

Prof C Explains
1 min readMay 9, 2016

A hilarious tale of a 52 year-old laid-off Newsweek writer who goes to work at Hubspot, where he is supervised by someone half his age and clashes harshly with the culture. Great comic relief (I laughed out loud several times), but provided some good insight into how younger folks can get sold into thinking that working at a place with free beer and nerf gun fights (but no PTO or good benefits) is a good idea. Lyons writes for the show Silicon Valley as well. Amazon Link
