Last spring, Ellen Pao set Silicon Valley ablaze with her gender discrimination lawsuit against her former employer, the venerated venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers.
Pao now has a deal for a book, in which she plans to go into detail about her experiences with the "toxic culture that pervades the tech industry." Random House imprint Spiegel & Grau has acquired Pao's memoir, titled "Reset," and you can read a press release about it below.
