The Airbnb StoryValley’s ‘unicorn’ startupsYet the company has not been without controversy – disrupting a billion hotel industry makes you a few enemies This is also a story of regulators who want to shut it down hotel industry leaders who want it to disappear and neighbourhoods that struggle with private homes open for public rental But beyond the headlines and the horror stories Airbnb has changed the terms of travel for a whole generation – where a sense of belonging has built. There's an incredible amount of research gone into this book with plenty of data statistics uotes details of local laws etc Personally I found it all made for a dull story wtih too much minutia I enjoyed the chapters about people's personal experience of renting out their homes but most were dramatically bad so it made me wonder why people do it There was a lot of detail about the company's conflict in big cities like New York where renting out your home or part if it seems to be in conflict with many local laws I found all the legal stuff very tedious not helped by the fact I am not a US citizen so the many different laws and regulations meant nothing nor the politians and local people in government that were uotedIt took me weeks to read and even then I have skimmed much of itWith thanks to NetGalley and Penguin Random House UK Ebury Publishing for a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
