When the enigmatic billionaire founder and CEO of Tetration, the world's most powerful tech company, is diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer, he hires a failed novelist, Josh Cohen, to ghostwrite his memoirs. This tech mogul, known only as "Principal", takes Josh deep into his own mind, and outlines the history of Tetration, which started by revolutionizing the search engine and later ventured into smartphones, computer manufacturing, and the surveillance of American citizens.
Accompanying Josh on a mind-bending world tour of local Tetration offices, from Palo Alto to Dubai, Principal soon initiates Josh into the secret pretext of the autobiography project, and the life-or-death stakes that surround its publication.

Ignore the reviews. A funny and engrossing book.
I found this book interesting all the way through, building as it went along. An excellent reader for the text, which might have been off-puttimg on paper. Can't understand the extremely negative reviews. Give it a try. If you don't like it, return it.

Utter waste of credit
This was a book written in the style of a pompous, self-absorbed, redundant and scatter-brain author...ghost writing as himself for his namesake...supposedly exposing the underbelly of the tech industry... Apparently the real-life author playing the ghost writer has written prior readable material--there was little evidence of that here. The monotone, lifeless narration made the book practically unlistenable (I will puke if I hear cafe vs. caffe one more time), but was sadly in keeping with the quality of the actual book. Mr. Cohen may have had a story worth enduring for, but I for one could not get past the garbage posing as writing to get to it.
