Po Bronson and Arvind Gupta–two renegade venture capitalists from Silicon Valley–take everyday news headlines and decode them, leading us on a journey through their twisted and … entertaining view of the world. Each chapter is prefaced with a real-world headline ripped from today’s chaotic news cycle: Trump’s trade war. Dying bees. Rogue planets. Beyond Meat. Glaciers melting. Bronson and Gupta then decipher what’s really going on behind these headlines, and why. What they offer is first-hand experience in funding technologies to solve these problems, most of which involve genetic engineering.
