    Professionally written and a superb, engrossing story It follows the initial start up and evolution of the idea from an elite limousine service to one where anyone with a car can become a taxi driver The use of ex spies to identify potential law enforcement officials and then the development and use of the grey ball software to evade them is breathtaking The negotiations with venture capitalists are instructive The use and misuse of customer data is an important case study The denouement where CEO Travis is forced out is riveting and instructive about corporate governance Travis leaves with 5 billion after 8 years work but casualties along the way.

    Spectacular story of one of the biggest success stories of our time I came out of it disgusted at Kalanick s behaviour and values but also in awe of his ambition and raw talent Clearly he built the Uber we can t seem to do without now
