"The Cult of We" by Eliot Brown and Maureen Farrell is an exploration of the rise and fall of WeWork, a shared workspace company once valued at $47 billion that faced scandals and plummeted in value. The book examines the charismatic leadership of WeWork's founder, Adam Neumann, and the company's culture of blind faith in his grandiose plans, ultimately highlighting the dangers of unchecked ambition and the need for accountability in high-stakes entrepreneurship.
