Chaos Monkeys is a memoir of Antonio Garcia Martinez’s time working as a coder at Goldman Sachs, as a startup employee and founder, and as a product manager at Facebook.

Martinez began working at Goldman Sachs after college as a pricing quant, which is industry slang for a programmer who builds models for pricing credit derivatives. Quants had low status at the firm and Martinez became disillusioned with employees’ reliance on the annual bonus and the gambling-heavy culture of the workplace. In late 2007, he applied for and was offered a job at Adchemy, a startup in California that was developing tools to buy advertising on Google’s real-time bidding engine, the system Google uses to determine which bidder gets advertising space for every Google search.

By 2010, Martinez considered Adchemy, which was led by Chief Executive Officer Murthy Nukala, to be approaching failure. Leadership turnover was high and the company’s…

"Chaos Monkeys" is a memoir of Antonio Garcia Martinez's time working as a coder at Goldman Sachs, as a startup employee and founder, and as a product manager at Facebook. Martinez began working at Goldman Sachs after college as a pricing quant, which is industry slang for a programmer who build models for pricing credit derivatives. He later took a job at Adchemy, but saw that this startup was headed towards failure. So he started his own company, only to dump it in favor of working at Facebook. Once again he left that for a new lifestyle.

This review by Instaread distilled the memoir into a manageable read. Each section was concise, and memorable, building upon the message of a cynical programmer uninterested in the Valley culture. This summary described the major plot points, described each of the characters, examined the various themes and messaging, and then analyzed the author's voice. If you needed a guideline for writing a book report, or for understanding... Read more
Antonio Garcia Martinez worked as a coder at Goldman Sachs, and then moved to Silicon Valley where he worked at a tech startup, and then founded, along with two colleagues, his own startup. He then junked that and went to work as a product manager at Facebook. In his memoir, he takes pot shots at many of the companies that he worked at—including his own startup—and the people with whom he worked. What comes out of his memoir, Chaos Monkeys, referring to a programming tool that introduces unpredictable failures in programs for testing, and also refers to the impact that startups have on the economy, is a portrait of a workaholic who has little time or regard for making personal connections; including with his own family.
Summary of Chaos Monkeys by Antonio Garcia Martinez by Instaread is an in depth analysis of the book, which shows its zigzag narrative and exposes the author’s weaknesses. This short summary is a valuable tool to help a busy reader determine the... Read more
This is a summary of Antonio Garcia Martinez's memoir. He has had a very interesting career so far. He's worked at the investment banking firm, Goldman Sachs and at Facebook as a product manager. He's had a few other jobs along the way, too. His focus seems to be more on achieving a satisfying lifestyle than any particular business goal. This Instaread summary outlined all the key points and was a quick read. I'm not normally interested in the lifestyles of tech/investment banker types, but Martinez sounds like an interesting guy. I was given this Instaread for review. I found it well written and it provided enough information to give me a good understanding of what Martinez's is getting at. I highly recommend it as a stand-alone or as a companion to Martinez's full book.
