really liked it

An entertaining and engagingly paced read of the rise and fall of Travis Kalanick's Uber by an NYT reporter. Reminds us of the risks of fast growth and expansion at all costs, plus the perils when that doesn't work...

Isaac's got a good voice, and runs a great newsletter and reporting at the NYT. The copy editing on this first run of the book, however, seems to suffer from haste to publish, as other reviews have noted. I'm sure the small errors of naming will be cleaned up, but the structure (back references, etc) look like some copy/paste for ordering got awry in the editing. Nothing that should halt folks interested in the topic from reading - you'll learn and manage better!
