Valley Speak: Deciphering the Jargon of Silicon Valley by Rochelle Kopp & Steven Ganz

Posted: August 1, 2016 in Uncategorized

Silicon Valley has a lingo of its own — from unicorns to pivoting to growth hacking — that while colorful can also be rather opaque. This is the definitive guide to the unique words used in the Bay Area startup scene, helping everyone from people who want to do business here to those who just want to watch HBO’s Silicon Valley without being confused. It’s designed to be thorough and accurate while including a touch of humor (because face it, the way people talk in Silicon Valley can often be a bit ridiculous!)

If you ve wanted a way to break into the exciting conversation that is happening in Silicon Valley, this book is for you. Or if you’re already in Silicon Valley, you may become frustrated when your colleagues in other places just don’t get how things are done here and wish you had a handy primer to give them. You may be familiar with some of the terms, but wish that you had a deeper understanding, so that you could use them with more confidence. Valley Speak features the top 100 Silicon Valley words and phrases and will help anyone navigate the Silicon Valley ecosystem like a pro.
Review: This is a cool and funny book. A must read if Valley Speak is something that interests you!
