Tracy Kidder (Mountains Beyond Mountains)—deemed the “master of the nonfiction narrative” by The Baltimore Sun—brings us the story of inventor and entrepreneur Paul English. Growing up poor in working-class Boston, English had, as Kidder puts it, “a mind for the age that was coming.” Early on, one colleague observed: “Someday this boy’s going to get hit by a truck full of money, and I’m going to be standing beside him.” After his startup Kayak sold for $2 billion, English immediately started thinking about how to give the money away. (“What else would you do with it?”) New York Times author Charles Duhigg calls A Truck Full of Money “a perfectly executed, exquisitely reported parable of the Internet age and the wild, mad adventure that is startup culture.” Kidder will talk about his experience researching and writing this book, which casts a fresh eye on the way new ideas and new money are reshaping our culture and the world.
