We Are the Nerds
Christine Lagorio-Chafkin
We Are the Nerds (2018) chronicles the turbulent rise of Reddit, one of the internet’s most popular and controversial websites. The product of careful research into the content aggregator’s history and in-depth interviews with leading staffers, Lagorio-Chafkin whisks us from its birth among beer bottles and pizza boxes to executive infighting and billions of clicks a month – with controversy-laden pit stops along the way.
The good word
“Your 15 minutes spent reading the summary might well be what encourages you to buy the book itself.“
“The summaries are actually pretty great; I checked out a few books I had read against Blinkist's take and they managed to get all the salient details in.“
“It’s about curation and condensing – pure human brainpower and field experts with a passion for explaining complex matters is the name of the game here.“
