Publisher's Summary

A young entrepreneur makes the case that politics has no place in business and sets out a new vision for the future of capitalism.

The modern woke-industrial complex divides us as a people. By mixing morality with consumerism, corporate elites prey on our innermost insecurities about who we really are. They sell us cheap social causes and skin-deep identities to satisfy our hunger for a cause and our search for meaning, at a moment when we lack both.

Vivek Ramaswamy is a traitor to his class. He’s founded multibillion-dollar enterprises, led a biotech company as CEO, trained as a scientist at Harvard and a lawyer at Yale, and grew up the child of immigrants in a small town in Ohio. Now he takes us behind the scenes into corporate boardrooms and five-star conferences, into Ivy League classrooms and secretive nonprofits, to reveal the defining scam of our century.

But this book not only rips back the curtain on the new corporatist agenda, it offers a better way forward. Corporate elites may want to sort us into demographic boxes, but we don’t have to stay there. Woke, Inc. begins as a critique of stakeholder capitalism and ends with an exploration of what it means to be a member of society in 2021 - a journey that begins with cynicism and ends with hope.

disjointed

it's disjointed, a lot of financial jargon that doesn't quite mesh with biographical elements other than the observation that ecconomic systems change the nature of social relations. The point so far is that the marriage of both negatively impact each other. The author illustrates this with a foray in to his parents marriage. I think the book suffers from this careening changing tone of personal reminiscence and legalistic and economic language. It seems to fall in to the trap of what it criticises - the muddying mix of economic, legal and personal. The Last few chapters might bring it all together, I'm at chapter 6. currently wading through a sea of US centric acronyms

A book whose time has come!

During these uncertain times there are a group of brave leaders who are stepping up to make the case to protect our way of life. It is quite clear to me Vivek did not have to write this book and in many ways would have cost him dearly but as much I have no doubt he is a brave man I also believe it is a calling and one he has stepped up to perfectly.

A must read!

This book articulated my concerns about woke culture, as well as surprisingly outlining the loss of deep routed cultures through capitalism and the free market, and the risks of mixing these ideals with politics. It highlights the corruption with multiple examples and the probable bleak outcomes to the world we now find ourselves in, but with optimistic ideas how to bring people of all diversity (physical attributes and diversity of thought) together.

Will re:listen to ensure I absorb it all.

Informed and incisive

Informative book from a person fully qualified to write on the topic.
I'm English, and still found it relevant, despite it's very US-centric angle.
Can't recommend enough.

much needed book

very insightful, well researched, and enthusiastically narrated book. very focused on the situation in the USA (the epicentre of wokeness) and patriotic to its core. It would have been beneficial to include a chapter on wokeness in a more global context. The main disappointment with the book for me is that it doesn't go into enough depth regarding potential strategies to sue company boards and companies for destroying shareholder value through "diversity" measures or engaging in discriminatory "diversity" hiring. There is however a chapter dedicated to unfair dismissals and legal solutions for impacted individuals. Overall, it is a much needed book and well worth reading.
