Very Smart Satire

"The CEO, Trevor, is right. Mustard goes with everything, yet we accept a version that is full of pesticides, sugar, and probably subprime mortgages. Their mustard is called The People's Mustard, because it supports (rather than oppresses) people, unlike most condiments. And my manager is cool! He runs the engineering team, and I'm the first female engineer. It's wild to make history so early in my career. Also, being an engineer at a mustard startup makes me inherently more interesting to others because no one knows what engineering work goes into mustard manufacturing, including me, and that makes me special."

Charming with biting satire, a terrifying reflection of the tech industry. A must listen for anyone with an interest in satire, the tech industry, or mustard.

Uh-maz-ing…or just valley girl uhm

Gives quickie satire. Skewers techies, millennials, and influencers. And men- this lady clearly holds a grudge. The valley girl speak is a little over the top. But, I give this two evil Elizabeth Banks snap-clap backs. Yaz, Queens!

Absurdist but funny

The characters aren’t likeable and the plot is a bit absurd, but audio books rarely make me laugh out loud so I give it 5 stars!

I thought it was very funny but what do I know.

This book is much funnier than the alternate history, apocalyptic novels, and game lit I usually read.

Absurdly funny tech industry satire

Very well written and performed, absurd (and absurdly funny) satire on the foibles and pitfalls of the tech startup industry. The humor has a unique and fresh voice to it, and strikes a great balance of silliness and cutting social commentary. Highly recommended.

Confused

I saw some positive reviews so thought I’d persevere with this, but I just don’t understand the appeal. The humour was so repetitive and obvious. Some of the performances were decent but I feel they were wasting their time. Why was it funny? Why were all the characters so unbelievably stupid? Who was this satirising? I must’ve missed something. So disappointing.

Catch-22 for the millennium generation

Emery gets a job with an exciting new tech-condiment-start-up, Yes We Mustard, a company whose business model and CEO bear ABSOLUTELY NO RESEMBLENCE to Facebook or Mark Zuckerberg. Soon, her desire to be loved for saving the world and become an inspirational GIRL BOSS, leads her to investigate the mysterious “addictive fructose powder” that is being put into the company’s exciting condiment products.

Ginny Hogan’s satire is a glorious affair. With a joke rate comparable to a great Marx Brothers’ movie, she lampoons everything that crosses her path, from corporate culture (“now you can listen to your great and heroic CEO”), to faux-feminism (“when a man fires someone it’s mean, but when a woman fires someone it’s empowering”). Her real targets though are ignorance and selfishness – things that the ENLIGHTENED leaders of Facebook and their ilk are in no way responsible for just because their entire business models are based on their promotion.

Ginny Hogan has been an impressive stand-up for a number of years now. Based on Yes We Mustard she is also a gifted playwright. I look forward to more of both from her in the years to come.

I got an Audible account just for this book.

Good lord, some of the writing in here is painful, not for its quality, but for how true to the satirised subject it is.

Hogan has done a brilliant job skewering an industry that seems hellbent on reinventing the world, but worse. The characters are at once naive and self-serving, and it's a delight to come to dislike them over time.
