Trampled By Unicorns: Big Tech’s Empathy Problem And How To Fix It by Maëlle Gavet

The Blurb On The Back:

There is no Blurb On The Back.  Instead there are the following quotes:

”Gavet has delivered a very important piece of work which highlights the issues around technology, information, democracy, and the human condition.  Everyone will benefit from reading her analysis.”

ROBERT SIEGEL, Lecturer in Management, Stanford Graduate School of Business

“Gavet proposed a number of remedies – not quick fixes, but fundamental shifts into more equitable, long-term thinking that will actually make everyone much happier without the addictive highs of 100x returns and CEO worship.”

ESTHER DYSON, Founding Chair, ICANN; Executive Founder, Wellville

“Despite being a tech insider, Maëlle Gavet successfully applies outside-in thinking to the tech backlash.  The future of tech depends on it.”

CHRISTA QUARLES, Former CEO, OpenTable; Board Member, Kimberly-Clark and Affirm

“Gavet doesn’t just discuss the current and emerging problems confronting the tech industry and those of us who use their products; she recommends thoughtful and implementable solutions.  This is a book for anyone who cares about the future of technology and the technology industry.”

LARRY IRVING, Former U.S. Assistant Secretary of Commerce; Member, Internet Hall of Fame

“Maëlle Gavet has written a book that should be an alert to us all – not by pointing a finger, but through sound diagnosis leading to a credible course of action.  A great contribution to inform a public debate that needs to happen now.”

RICHARD STRAUB, Founder and President, Global Peter Drucker Forum
