Publisher's Summary

High Growth Handbook is the playbook for growing your startup into a global brand.

"If you want the chance to turn your startup into the next Google or Twitter, then listen to this trenchant guide from someone who played key roles in the growth of these companies." (Reid Hoffman, co-founder of LinkedIn and New York Times number one best-selling author)

Global technology executive, serial entrepreneur, and angel investor Elad Gil has worked with high-growth, tech companies like Airbnb, Twitter, Google, Stripe, and Square as they've grown from small companies to global enterprises.

Across all of these breakout companies, a set of common patterns has evolved into a repeatable playbook that Gil has now codified in High Growth Handbook. In this definitive guide, Gil covers key topics, including:

  • The role of the CEO
  • Managing a board 
  • Recruiting and managing an executive team 
  • Mergers and acquisitions 
  • Initial public offerings 
  • Late-stage funding 

Interspersed with and informed by interviews with some of the biggest names in Silicon Valley including Reid Hoffman (LinkedIn), Marc Andreessen (Andreessen Horowitz), and Aaron Levie (Box), High Growth Handbook presents crystal-clear guidance for navigating the most complex challenges that confront leaders and operators in high-growth startups.

New ideas by brilliant people, tarred by diversity

This is a must read book for the person scaling a startup. It is only painful to hear the chapters on diversity, which are deeply saturated in a philosophy that was fashionable the year this book was written, that people should be judged by their identity group membership instead of their quality and character as individuals.

Overall great, but tricky as audiobook

Would definitely recommend reading, but probably as physical book or kindle to be able to make notes and come back to chapters, advice and tables.

Very good content, the audiobook not so good

Really liked the content of the book. Seemed very real and pragmatic. Although, the audiobook format doesn't do it full justice. Will buy the book and keep as reference.

Great content, terrible narration

I enjoyed the content of this book, but the narration was cumbersome - especially when the names of interviewees were repeated million times.
