Editorial Reviews

Review

"An engrossing story of audacious entrepreneurism and big-industry disruption, The Airbnb Story is a tale for our times.” --Charles Duhigg, author of bestsellers Smarter Faster Better and The Power of Habit

"Gallagher captures the remarkable journey of Airbnb exceedingly well; she takes readers from its earliest and scrappiest days through  becoming an enduring company with a brand beloved by millions around the world.” --Reid Hoffman, partner at Greylock Partners

“A fast paced, fun dive into one of the seminal firms of our time; though the tale of Airbnb, Leigh Gallagher shows us how the sharing economy can be a force for emotional connection -- as well as for social and business disruption." -- Rana Foroohar, Financial Times columnist and CNN global economic analyst.

“A must-read for anyone who has wondered where Airbnb came from and where this highly popular and very disruptive company might be headed.  Leigh Gallagher takes you on a journey from the idea all the way to the company's current multi-billion dollar valuation.”-- Bethany McLean, co-author of bestsellers The Smartest Guys in the Room and All the Devils Are Here

“Leigh Gallagher has written a compelling history of Airbnb’s journey from a crazy, it-will-never-work idea to becoming a totally disruptive force.” --Tony Hsieh, bestselling author of Delivering Happiness and CEO of Zappos.com, Inc.

“‘The Airbnb Story’ does yeoman’s work explaining the Airbnb phenomenon to the uninitiated.” -- San Francisco Chronicle

"Highly recommended for researchers and students of business as well as potential entrepreneurs, and anybody interested in Airbnb’s success story." -- Library Journal, *starred* review
