Attending SXSW this year I met up with Antonio Garcia. Antonio is an out-of-the-ordinary Wall Street 'quant' who turned entrepreneur. He founded a Y-combinater backed startup, sold it to Twitter and moved to Facebook himself. All of this and much more he recounts in his book 'Chaos Monkeys, an unfiltered memoir of life inside the Silicon Valley machine'. Not just another business book, but a true novel that trumps the famed TV series ‘Silicon Valley’ in giving a insight in how the tech scene rolls. Some good news: the book will be available in Dutch in spring of 2017. During this episode we discuss the book and Antonio's colourfull life, we pick up on fascinating learnings for entrepreneurs and get some pointers for great books. Enjoy the ride!
