Factually Inaccurate and Therefore Not "Definitive" At All
Reviewed in the United States on February 28, 2020
Steven Levy interviewed me for this book on November 5, 2018 in San Francisco. I'd like him to release the audio recording of our interview because much of what I've read so far is factually inaccurate, contradicts what I'm certain I told him (and what I published in my own book, which he cited), and omits key details. Unless my memory is wildly inaccurate, one minor point seems to be fabricated. This is all surprising, since on May 31, 2019, Steven e-mailed me stating, "Fact checking in next few months...." Yet I never heard from him or anyone else at Penguin Random House to check any facts at all.
In short, don't believe everything you read—especially when written by journalists who boast about years of access to billionaires and their accomplices. Access journalism isn't journalism, it's corporate propaganda, and this is sadly no different.
