Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Review:

"It's rare that a thirty-year-old has a memoir worth writing-let alone worth reading-but Alexis Ohanian's Without Their Permission is an exception. 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, author and statistician, FiveThirtyEight blog, New York Times

Review:

"Without Their Permission shows how anyone can use the power of the Internet to make the world a much cooler place to live." Tony Hsieh, New York Times bestselling author of Delivering Happiness and CEO of Zappos.com, Inc.

Review:

"Software is eating the world and Without Their Permission is your ultimate cookbook." Marc Andreessen, cofounder and partner at Andreessen Horowitz

About the Author

In additon to starting Reddit.com, Alexis Ohanian has also been instrumental in other successful online ventures, including HipMunk and BreadPig. He lives in Brooklyn but remains a diehard fan of the Washington Redskins.
