As Alexis Ohanian learned when he helped to co-found the immensely popular reddit.com, the internet is the most powerful and democratic tool for disseminating information in human history. And when that power is harnessed to create new communities, technologies, businesses or charities, the results can be absolutely stunning. In this book, Alexis will share his ideas, tips and even his own doodles about harnessing the power of the web for good, and along the way, he will share his philosophy with young entrepreneurs all over the globe. At 29, Ohanian has come to personify the dorm-room tech entrepreneur, changing the world without asking permission. Within a couple of years of graduating from the University of Virginia, Ohanian did just that, selling reddit for millions of dollars. He's gone on to start many other companies, like hipmunk and breadpig, all while representing Y Combinator and investing in over sixty other tech startups. Without Their Permission is his personal guidebook as to how other aspiring entrepreneurs can follow in his footsteps.

This book is full of useful advice for entrepreneurs of all ages, and Alexis describes his remarkable accomplishments with an endearing combination of geekiness, enthusiasm, and sincerity.” Nate Silver, editor-in-cheif, FiveThirtyEight 
“Software is eating the world and Without Their Permission is your ultimate cookbook.” Marc Andreessen, cofounder and partner at Andreessen Horowitz

Story

Written for those in the industry wanting inspiration and encouragement.

Alexis is an easy writer to listen to: very informal in style and humorous. Not at all a how to book, there are lots of insights and directives to those interested in the industry of tech start ups. But there was not quite enough material for this entire book, so it wanes towards the end. Still very enjoyable. 3.5 overall.
