Reviews
"Swisher, the bad-ass journalist and OG chronicler of Silicon Valley and its denizens (almost all of them male because, well, tech world), takes no prisoners in this highly readable look at the evolution of the digital world. . . Bawdy, brash, and compulsively thought-provoking, just like its author, Burn Book sizzles."
--BOOKLIST (Starred Review)
"The most recognizable chronicler of the digital revolution."
--WASHINGTON POST

"Nobody straddles the world of tech and media quite like Kara Swisher... This book isn't just a juicy read, it's also a valuable historical document, giving readers an inside look at the architects of some of the biggest tech moments of the last thirty years."
--Charlotte Alter, TIME

"An exposé that also seeks to avert technological calamity on the perilous road still ahead."
--ASSOCIATED PRESS

"Funny, smart, chic-y, and insightful."
--Katie Couric

"Burn Book shows how understanding these leaders' pasts can illuminate their current motivations and aspirations."
--AXIOS

"The queen of all media."
--Walt Mossberg, former WALL STREET JOURNAL columnist

"Swisher has been the most entrepreneurial of reporters, both in the doggedness of her work and the ever-evolving array of venues where it's manifested itself."
--FAST COMPANY

"The book is also deeply personal and frankly, very moving."
--Samantha Bee

"Unlike the mythological Cassandra whose prophecies were ignored, both the 'children' and adults will pay heed to [Kara Swisher's] warnings."
--THE DAILY BEAST

"As existential questions confront both the tech and media industries... Swisher takes no prisoners, offering readers a behind-the-curtain peek at the industry's most powerful and ego-obsessed titans."
