Abstract

In The Power Law: Venture Capital and the Art of Disruption, Sebastian Mallaby draws on interviews with leading names in global tech and venture capital to reveal how venture capital works, particularly in backing some of the world’s most successful companies. While the analysis is US-centric and would benefit from engagement with a broader range of economic theory on innovation, this is an enjoyable and exciting read full of tantalising anecdotes, writes Robyn Klingler-Vidra. The Power Law: Venture Capital and the Art of Disruption. Sebastian Mallaby. Penguin Random House. 2022.
