THE UPSTARTS How Uber, Airbnb, and the Killer Companies of the New Silicon Valley Are Changing the World

by | Read by Dean Temple

Contemporary Culture • 10.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

Bloomberg Media technology reporter Stone provides new details concerning the strategies, tactics, and methodologies employed by Uber and Airbnb. Founders Kalanick of Uber and Chesky of Airbnb are often flying in the face of very established companies to change their respective industries in graphic, innovative, and dramatic ways. First-time narrator Dean Temple's vocal quality, while appropriately youthful, is noticeably weak--as if he is not connecting with the material. Words are not well enunciated, and his tone has little warmth or enthusiasm. The production quality is distracting despite the audiobook's vital exploration of contemporary technological innovation.
