HubSpot fires marketing chief, sanctions CEO over incident involving book about the company | BetaBoston

Not yet available for preorder, but apparently a must-read book, at least for HubSpot employees...

"HubSpot, one of the area’s hottest tech firms, fired its top marketing executive for attempting to obtain a draft of a forthcoming book about the company apparently written by a former employee and billed as his “Misadventure in the Startup Bubble.”
[...]
The book is likely thought to be the work of Dan Lyons, a former journalist who worked in a marketing position at HubSpot until December. In addition to writing screenplays scripts for “Silicon Valley,” an the HBO series that spoofed spoofing the tech-startup culture, Lyons previously penned the wildly popular blog, Fake Steve Jobs, which parodied the co-founder of the Apple cofounder Steve Jobs before his illness and death as a vulgar, self-righteous, and power-hungry executive impatient with others’ stupidity."
