Now through March 6, 2017, upload an image of your preorder receipt of the paperback edition of Disrupted by Dan Lyons and you will receive a Disruptive Workplace Survival Kit to help you navigate this brave new world of the “modern workplace” (think: open plan offices, ping pong tables and beer pong parties).

The kit includes:

  1. 1) Ear plugs to drown out the extra bubbly millennial sitting one foot away from you as you toil away in your open plan office. Your four walls have been taken away from you in the name of “egalitarianism” and “collaboration”.
  2. 2) “Bang Head Here” poster to hang in your hallway at home–because you don’t have an office to hang it in–and use before leaving for work and upon returning home from work.
  3. 3) “Total team player!” water bottle to display proudly on your desk giving the illusion that you’re part of the cult…whoops, team.

You'll also receive a sneak-peek excerpt from the book!

About The Book

For twenty-five years Dan Lyons was a magazine writer at the top of his profession – until one Friday morning when his editor at Newsweek told him that his job as technology editor no longer existed.

HubSpot, a Boston tech startup with a kooky culture, offered Dan a pile of stock options and gave him the vague title of “marketing fellow.” What could possibly go wrong? In a word, everything.

Mixed in with Dan’s uproarious tale of a job from hell is a trenchant analysis of startup culture and a poignant, painfully honest account of being middle-aged and struggling to pursue personal reinvention. Disrupted has been hailed by critics as a book that will make you laugh, but also will make you think.

Dan Lyons is a novelist, journalist, screenwriter, and public speaker. He was a staff writer on the first two seasons of the Emmy-winning HBO series Silicon Valley. Previously, Lyons was technology editor at Newsweek and the creator of the groundbreaking viral blog "The Secret Diary of Steve Jobs" (AKA "Fake Steve Jobs"). Lyons has written for the New York Times Magazine, GQ, Vanity Fair, and Wired. He lives in Winchester, MA.
