Tony Hsieh Praises WHAT'S MINE IS YOURS

The CEO of Zappos.com, Inc. and author of Delivering Happiness has this to say about Rachel Botsman and Roo Rogers' forthcoming book:

"What can the next wave of collaborative marketplaces look like? Botsman and Rogers answer this question in a highly readable and persuasive way. Anyone interested in the business opportunities and social power of collaboration should consider reading this book."

Another wonderful blurb comes from Steven Johnson, author of Where Good Ideas Come From and The Ghost Map:

“After listening to a thousand tirades against the excesses and waste of consumer society, What’s Mine Is Yours offers us something genuinely new and invigorating: a way out. Anyone interested in the emerging economics of collaboration will want to read this profoundly hopeful book.”
