Product Details


“Adam Lashinsky is one of the most insightful, enterprising, and energetic reporters covering technology in America today. He’s always a joy to read.”
—WALTER ISAACSON, author of Steve Jobs and The Innovators

“In Silicon Valley, no company is more ambitious, audacious, or annoying than Uber. Adam Lashinsky’s insightful book, brimming with comments and confessions from CEO Travis Kalanick, would be worth reading even at surge pricing.”
—STEVEN LEVY, author of Hackers and In the Plex

“Adam Lashinsky chronicles Uber’s rise from scrappy start-up to global giant with aplomb. It’s an epic story in itself, but Lashinsky’s insight and extensive reporting guarantee that it’s a valuable read as well.”
—BETHANY MCLEAN, author of All the Devils Are Here and The Smartest Guys in the Room

Wild Ride is the unprecedented story of Uber and its ruthless and visionary CEO Travis Kalanick. No new company has ever grown larger faster. Lashinsky captures Uber’s epic ambitions with extraordinary access and keen judgment. It’s a must read for everyone interested in business, technology, and the future.”
—JOHN DOERR, chairman of Kleiner Perkins

“With the eye of a fine journalist and the ear of a mordant humorist, Adam Lashinsky has nailed the formative ingredients which gave rise to the four-letter word known around the world—‘Uber.’”
—MICHAEL MORITZ, partner at Sequoia Capital

“Just a few pages into Wild Ride you can see why the insanely talented Adam Lashinsky is one of the most respected business journalists around today. Lashinsky takes you behind the many layers of tumult and ambition that created one of Silicon Valley’s most controversial and disruptive juggernauts, Uber, and the company’s insatiable, and often frightening, quest to win.”
—NICK BILTON, author of American Kingpin and Hatching Twitter
