Money Mavericks Reviews

"The book is entertaining, informative, and easy to read thanks to the author's self-deprecating, down-to-earth and lucid writing style. Lars Kroijer applies a birth-to-death of business narrative account and thankfully manages to find the right balance between providing anecdotes which inform on the culture, value chain, overall economics and societal value of the industry".
