Book Description


To me, living in San Francisco, California means eating at new restaurants, trying microbrews at dive bars, discovering new parks, seeing up-and-coming bands, and paying an extremely high monthly rent. Aside from the final part, I love that about San Francisco. But it wasn't until the introduction of Groupon to my life that I was able to enjoy these things...and at half the cost, no less.

Since it began to appear in my daily email inbox, Groupon has brought nothing but good: more beers with friends, more local comedians, more great food, and more getting out of the house because I can afford to do so. Watching "60 Minutes: The Real Deal With Groupon" confirmed my love for the company and its revolutionary idea, but made me question whether Groupon is doing any good for the businesses it represents. This "60 Minutes" segment doesn't just show the fun side of Groupon founder and CEO Andrew Mason; it also questions whether all that fun is going anywhere

Regardless, the "60 Minutes" segment is worth the watch. If nothing else, it will show you where your money is going the next time you hit that bright green "Buy!" button.
