What is your takeaway? Did you like the story of how messaging apps, marketplaces, workplace collaboration tools, multiplayer games, all share a common thread of being products that connect people with each other? Launching and scaling these products requires a mastery of “network effects”. ... And this is where I am currently in need of help from a co-founder.
Read it, was a good book but mainly from the perspective that it was a first stab at explaining the "network effect". Everyone talks about it but no one understands or defines what it is - so I liked it.
Main take away was the atomic network and also the hard side of the network. It was also helpful to split out the lifecycle stages of a networked product - this should be remembered by all startups as often time we try to jump steps.
