Sharp, dramatic, and full of insider dish, SOPHIA OF
SILICON VALLEY is one woman’s story of a career storming the
corridors of geek power and living in the shadow of its
outrageous cast of maestros.
During the heady years of the tech boom, incorrigibly frank
Sophia Young lucks into a job that puts her directly in the
path of Scott Kraft, the eccentric CEO of Treehouse, a
studio whose animated films are transforming movies forever.
Overnight, Sophia becomes an unlikely nerd whisperer.
Whether her success is due to dumb luck, savage
assertiveness, insightful finesse (learned by dealing with
her irrational Chinese immigrant mother), or a combination
of all three, in her rarified position she finds she can
As Scott Kraft’s right-hand woman, whip-smart Sophia is in
the eye of the storm, sometimes floundering, sometimes
nearly losing relationships and her health, but ultimately
learning what it means to take charge of her own future the
way the men around her do. But when engineer/inventor Andre
Stark hires her to run his company’s investor relations,
Sophia discovers that the big paycheck and high-status
career she’s created for herself may not be worth living in
the toxic environment of a boys-club gone bad.
