If you’re interested in entrepreneurship and devoured books like The $100 Startup and The Lean Startup, The Science of Growth should be at the top of your “To Read” list. Sean Ammirati explores how to successfully take a startup to the next level through growth. The book examines ten pairs of companies who started around the same time and targeted similar customers, but one of the companies succeeded and the other failed. Examples include Tumblr and Posterous, Mint and Wesabe, and YouTube and Revver. If you’re an entrepreneur, you’ll be much better informed about successful growth strategies after reading Ammirati’s book.
