The Week in Geek is a terrific blog and newsletter from Prof. John Gallaugher of the Carroll School of Management at Boston College. He runs an annual Tech Trek for students through Silicon Valley and I'm often a stop in the tour. Sign up for his weekly newsletter at https://www.gallaugher.com.
From this Week's Geek: "TechTrek friend and class speaker Andy Kessler has another new book out – “Eat People: And Other Unapologetic Rules for Game-Changing Entrepreneurs“. Kessler is a frequent contributor to the Wall Street Journal and is the author of several other books, including “Wall Street Meat” which covers his time as an award-winning tech stock analyst, and “Running Money”, a primer on how he turned $11 million into $1 billion as a co-head of Velocity Capital. Disclosure, I blurbed the back cover of “Eat People” – the pre-release I reviewed last summer was hugely fun! Unapologetic is the watch-word. Don’t expect any “kumbaya” moments in a Kessler book. But like all of Andy’s work, it’s a rollicking read that’s chock full of interesting examples and provocative analysis. I remain a big Kessler fan."

Professor Gallaugher's blurb is here: "Check your ego at the door! Eat People is a no-holds barred primer on what separates winners from losers in today's economy. Written by an insider with a killer track record spanning Wall Street to Silicon Valley, the book is a must-read for managers and investors."
