The read does not disappoint. I joke that I would do very well in a game of Airbnb Trivial Pursuit. I was delighted to learn new things about the creation of the company I hold so dear.
The author is a first-rate story teller. This is just the beginning of Airbnb. as the company continues along its meteoric rise, author Leigh Gallagher will have no trouble following it up with updates.
Though there's an extensive discussion of disruption in the hotel industry, opposition in cities and already much-publicized horror stories, the book barely mentions how this company has transformed the lives of ordinary people since the Great Recession. For example, by being both a host and a guest via Airbnb, I was able to quit the job from hell and divide my time between New York City and France. It turns out, as the author tells us deep into "The Airbnb Story," that she has very little firsthand experience using the platform, and prefers to stay in hotels.
Will be doing a full book review on my channel soon. Check it out.
The book gives you insight to how Brian thinks and why he does what he does. It gives you insight into the importance of establishing a healthy corporate culture from the get-go. Creativity can spawn creativity.
