Blitzscaling: The Lightning-Fast Path to Building Massively Valuable Companies Kindle Edition
by Reid Hoffman (Author), Chris Yeh (Author),

I haven't read the full book yet, though I bought it.

The excerpt I read talks about some of the usual suspects: AirBnB, Rocket Internet, Kinnevik, etc., so the whole thing might be worth reading.

On sale on Amazon for $2.99 today:

I listened to the Audible version a while back. I put in the mediocre category: don't regret spending the time to listen to the book but generally wouldn't make a recommendation. Perhaps my feelings come from reading a similar type of book, Peter Thiel's Zero to One, which I found incredibly insightful and contrarian. I'd say the ideas in Blitzscaling are more interesting than your average "I built this business now here's my advice" kind of book, but I wouldn't put in on a very high pedestal.
