BURN BOOK A Tech Love Story

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Kara Swisher

Contemporary Culture • 7.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Journalist Kara Swisher specializes in reporting on the Internet. Here she narrates her memoir with urgency and focus, providing a you-are-there history of Silicon Valley. With more than a decade of podcasting experience, Swisher has developed a well-honed, rapid-fire delivery; an aura of journalistic integrity; and a firsthand knowledge of tech history. Anecdotes abound on such topics as discussing the intricacies of lesbian pregnancy with Jeff Bezos and trying to encourage Mark Zuckerberg to remove his sweat-drenched hoodie during a public interview. There are plenty of reveals about the fake-it-til-you-make-it individuals who built tech culture. More importantly, Swisher serves as the Valley's outlier conscience--fearful of the future and optimistically pessimistic. R.W.S.
