The Cult of We: WeWork, Adam Neumann, and the Great Startup Delusion

But the ever-inflating valuation was blinding for all involved; it was easy to believe that everything was working fine because everyone was getting richer on paper.

The Cult of We is an engaging book that reads like fiction. It’s hard to believe that the We company made it as far as it did with such disfunction.

It’s a snapshot of an era when money was flowing freely and office culture wasn’t burdened with the disruption of covid. The pure number of times tequila is a relevant part of the story is staggering.

The book is well-written and enjoyable to read. Knowing the chapters are short draws you in for one after another.

In a sense, this can be considered a management book—a lesson in what not to do and how not to act.
