Marketing Guru and Bestselling Author Ryan Holiday Examines the Scandal That Destroyed Gawker in His New Book Conspiracy
“He’s an out-of-the-box thinker who likes to take chances,” says The New York Times. “Conspiracy is one helluva page-turner.” Out now, Ryan Holiday’s latest book is a deep investigation into one of the most important events in the history of American journalism—the takedown of media giant Gawker, by a Silicon Valley billionaire.
The story is sordid, fascinating, and like all of the topics that Ryan Holiday speaks on, explores the true motivations, biases, and behaviors that preoccupy us all. In a recent interview in The New Republic he says, “I think that many of us—people who are genuinely pro-media—are aghast at the outcome of a billionaire putting a media outlet out of business. We need to make sure that our judgments about that are not blinding us to the facts of the case. Because facts matter and we can only learn from the facts if we agree on them.”
