Product description


"Elad Gil is one of Silicon Valley's seriously knowledgeable and battle-tested players.

"Elad eschews trite management aphorisms in favor of pragmatic and straight-shooting insights on complex topics." --Dick Costolo, former CEO of Twitter and serial entrepreneur

"Elad first invested in Airbnb when we were less than 10 people and provided early advice on scaling the company. This book shares these learnings for the next generation of entrepreneurs." --Nathan Blecharczyk, cofounder of Airbnb, Chief Strategy Officer, and Chairman of Airbnb China
