Outsider. Most readers don’t work in Silicon Valley, so for us outsiders, Anna Weiner’s memoir titled, Uncanny Valley, gives us a view into one person’s perspective on what it might be like to work for startups in that place. Weiner entered the Valley as an outsider, moving from New York to San Francisco, and not bringing with her the highly valued tech skills that dominate the region. Instead, she brought smarts, emotional intelligence, and the ability to communicate with customers. Weiner’s writing makes the book engaging and interesting for those readers who want a glimpse inside the culture of Silicon Valley startups.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
