    So, I don?t buy the whole blitzscaling thing. It sounds more like ?survival bias? to me - ?We have done something, our company survived, so the thing we have done is the right thing to do in our place.? It skips all other companies that have done the same thing (called ?...

    The author looks at successful Silicon Valley startups (including their own) and extrapolates that the decisions they made and the techniques they used must have been successful. Too many generic anecdotes for my taste. ...

    This book really is a great primer on rapid growth and I highly recommend it to startup and other founders who want to grow rapidly. I only rated this a 4, rather than a 5 because I listen to the podcast that is produced by Reid Hoffman, so some of the end of this book was repetitive. ...
