Awesome book. Not about payments or Square too much, so dont expect it to be that book. It does show what Jim learned throughout setting up Square and how he discovered the ‘innovation stack.’ Good for anyone setting up a biz or just interested in business in general. Highly recommend

Too long for a simple idea

Go on youtube and listen to his talk. That should be enough to understand the point of the book. No need to read this

It's just a compilation of stories that may or may not have been related to the history of VCs. Don't waste your time

I’m surprised to how many times someone can rephrase, be prudent, dont buy expensive, and boom and bust cycle. He peaked at the most important thing. Even that was a bit annoying because he just copy pasted his letters. This is not any different and offers ZERO upside to any reader. Walk away and buy yourself a latte.

Not as good as Sapiens. It's ok but I expected too much. Overall, it is not bad...

Can be shortened at least 10 times. Too much patting himself on the back. You might learn a thing or two but the length compared to what you might learn is not a good trade-off for your time. Ehh... Just watch his TED talk, you’ll probably get as much. You’re better off reading something else
