Super Pumped: The Battle for Uber

September 11 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Free
Powell’s City of Books, 1005 W Burnside Street, Portland, OR 97209 + Google Map

In June 2017, Travis Kalanick, the hard-charging CEO of Uber, was ousted in a boardroom coup that capped a brutal year for the transportation giant. Uber had catapulted to the top of the tech world, yet for many came to symbolize everything wrong with Silicon Valley. Award-winning New York Times technology correspondent Mike Isaac’s Super Pumped (W. W. Norton) presents the dramatic rise and fall of Uber. Super Pumped is a page-turning story of ambition and deception, obscene wealth, and bad behavior that explores how blistering technological and financial innovation culminated in one of the most catastrophic 12-month periods in corporate history.
