NO PLAN B: The Adventures of a Carbon Unit in Silicon Valley, or How I Made a Million Dollars in Hi-Tech Startups Basically by Just Showing Up (Don’t Try This at Home)

Ever wonder what it was like to participate in the Silicon Valley hi-tech revolution? To work at a startup struggling for survival? To be deeply embedded in a major company like Apple? This worklife memoir gets you in on the ground floor...and like its author, you’ll never rise any higher.

NO PLAN B is not a history of Silicon Valley. It is not the story of a struggling startup that went on to rule the world. It is the far more common story of a few startups that tried but tanked, as witnessed by a cubicle dweller who went down with those ships, often without a life preserver.

NO PLAN B is not a Silicon Valley overview. It is an underview. It is a memo sent from the trenches—notes from the break room, not the boardroom. No Plan B is not a business book; it’s a work book.

There are more than enough books about Silicon Valley that concentrate on The Big Picture: the epic struggles of a startup to survive, and the outrageous and outsized egos of their larger-than-life founders. But for every successful startup there are a hundred that go belly-up, and for every Steve Jobs or Mark Zuckerberg there are 10,000 nameless, faceless workers who toil in obscurity to make the vision of these visionaries a success...if only just to hold on to their jobs.

Nobody tells their stories. No Plan B is one...
