Review

Stone brings a big dose of truth serum to the marvels and machinations of the sharing economy and its founders...The Upstarts is rich with inside details.

-- "Forbes"

Offers a balanced view of these companies' spectacular rise: On one side, the disruption ushered in a new era of freedom regarding the services people use; on the other, the start-ups' growth represents 'the overweening hubris of the techno-elite.'

-- "New York Times"

Succeeds is in providing the reader with the visceral experience of the start-up enterprise.

-- "Washington Post"

The most detailed investigation yet into the early years of these Silicon Valley prodigies...an entertaining and well-crafted account.

-- "Financial Times (London)"

Timely, clear-eyed, and crisply written, The Upstarts is a must for readers seeking insight into how ideas and eventually businesses can succeed or fail in a technology-rich landscape.

-- "Amazon.com" --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
