Tracy Kidder - A Truck Full of Money. Nightcap Special in The Den after the event
Kidder is one of the best narrative nonfiction writers around, and his eleventh book combines the biographical flair of Mountains Beyond Mountains with the technological fluency that earned The Soul of a New Machine the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award. The story of Paul English, who cofounded Kayak.com in 2004 and became CEO of Blade, a venture-creation company, in 2014, takes us behind the scenes of tech start-ups and into the mind of a major player in that world. Engaging and iconoclastic, English discovered his rapport with computers early, and through digital connectivity has also developed a singular talent for motivating and inspiring the people who work with the technology.
