Backed by billions in venture capital dollars and led by Travis Kalanick, a brash and ambitious founder, Uber promised to revolutionize the way we move people and goods through the world. But in June 2017, Uber's hard-charging CEO was ousted in a boardroom coup that capped a brutal year for the transportation giant. What followed would become a corporate cautionary tale about the perils of startup culture and a vivid example of how blind worship of startup founders can go wildly wrong.  Based on hundreds of interviews with current and former Uber employees, along with previously unpublished documents, Super Pumped presents a tale of the startup's dramatic rise and fall in an era of rapid upheaval in Silicon Valley
