Interesting book about multi-sided platforms (Visa, Google, AirBNB, Uber, Facebook, OpenTable, nightclubs.. that kind of stuff). While the topic is very interesting and the book does a good job of explaining the main insights about it, it does feel a bit like a 20-page paper that was stretched to book-lenght, so it gets redundant. I still think it's worth getting if the topic interests you, but maybe read until it gets too redundant and then skim the rest. That's what I did.
