U is for Unicorn: The ABCs of Silicon Valley is a game-changing alphabet book about the lingo of the tech industry.

From Angel Investor to Napping Pod to Zero-Emissions Vehicle, this witty book explores the world of the San Francisco Bay Area one letter at a time.

Featuring buzzwords like Cryptocurrency, Hoodies, Rest and Vest, Moonshots, and more, these are the ABCs and ideas that innovators—from infants to Xennials—need to onboard now.
  • Pairs funny, knowing illustration with rhyming verse for each crucial concept
  • Follows a team of five talented employees (and one scrappy and resourceful raccoon)
  • Explores Silicon Valley culture letter-by-letter
Disruptors of all ages can Pivot to next-gen success as they scale their learning and crush it to become the thought leaders of tomorrow.

U is for Unicorn proves that Silicon Valley is rooted not just in a place, but in a state of mind anywhere Java (code and coffee) is flowing.
  • Makes a wonderfully witty gift for anyone who lives or works in the San Francisco Bay Area
  • Perfect as a baby shower gift for expecting parents who work in tech
Great for those who enjoyed The Code: Silicon Valley and the Remaking of America by Margaret O’Mara, Valley of Genius: The Uncensored History of Silicon Valley (As Told by the Hackers, Founders, and Freaks Who Made It Boom) by Adam Fisher, and BART: The Dramatic History of the Bay Area Rapid Transit System by Michael C.
