    If the first Uncommon Stock book was more of a business fiction story (kinda like the classic Eliyahu Goldratt's "Goal", but for startups), the series evolves more towards a business thriller of organized crime, political and financial corruption and (ok, I'll skip the spoilers).A fun, high paced read nevertheless. And doesn't lose all the startup founder themes - from weird private clubs in San Francisco, pitching yet-non-existing products to large clients, Burning Man and red eye flights.I wi [...]

    This startup thriller series keeps getting better and better. I really loved the first book in the series with fantastic startup advice mixed with a fun story, but this second book really turned up the heat and is a real page turner. This book should be required reading for anyone with even the mildest interest in startups. Can't wait for the finale!

    A quick, fun thriller, second in the series by local-boy-makes-good Eliot Peper. Mara Winkel is our first-person protagonist, CEO of Mozaik, a tech startup in Boulder. Mara and her posse struggle with interpersonal and inter-corporate demons as they try to bring their product to market, in a game that has higher stakes than they realized. It's definitely worth a look, and if you're interested in the changing face of fiction and publishing, worth some reflection. For example: The author and publi [...]

The Mozaik team are still trying to catch the money laundering bad guys while trying to solve the murder of some of their own. The narration for Power Play was done by Jennifer O'Donnell. She narrated the first book also and does a wonderful job on both. Her voice seems to lend perfectly to Mara's character. She has power and softness. Care [...]

    Uncommon Stock: Power Play is a wonderful read for individuals wanting to see the perspective of a tech startup from the eyes of founders.As with the first volume of Uncommon Stock: Version 1.0, Eliot did a wonderful job in Power Play with keeping the reader moving through the book. He put a nice twist in this volume which was very intriguing. And as with the first volume, this volume ended with me wanting to read the next book in the Uncommon series.I am not big fan on how easy it is that Mara [...]

    I raced through 2.0 faster than 1.0 - this was a great book! I’m an entrepreneur (“technical co-founder”) and went to school at CU, so this book particularly resonates with me. However, you don’t need to be either, as the “Uncommon Stock” series is just plain fun to read.Eliot Peper took things up a notch in this sequel, setting a faster pace, and further improving the writing. I love where he’s taken the story (but won’t spoil it). In particular I like that the startup company, [...]

    There are so many great things to say about Eliot Peper’s newest thriller, Uncommon Stock: Power Play. Let me first start by saying that I loved it even more than the first in the series, Uncommon Stock: Version 1.0.Suspense—get ready for a long, sleepless night. Peper’s novel had me on the edge of my seat, eager to complete each chapter and find out what happened next. However, it’s no cheap read—the characters are well rounded and Peper doesn’t manipulate the reader in the ways man [...]

    I got a digital Advance Review Copy from the author, because I had absolutely loved the first book. If you're an entrepreneur, I don't think there's a greater read out there. It's actually therapeutical for us entrepreneurs. I like this quote from Eliot: "I think the human mind is wired to understand complex problems through stories. It’s boring to read a complex problem that isn’t part of narrative."And starting a company is a very, very complex problem. Until now, we only had non-fiction b [...]

    Enjoyed this book much like the first in the series. You need to read the first book to understand this second book - there are some explanations, but very limited.The storyline keeps you engaged - a good amount is predictable, but there are some good twists in the book. I'm left wanting for some deeper character development though. The notion that "Mara is so surprised at where the last year has gone" and that she needs to run/exercise to clear her head is overdone while we get left wanting mor [...]

    Another great read from Eliot Peper. I'm really enjoying the Uncommon Stock series so far and I'm looking forward to book three. The Power Play story caused a couple of very late nights as I didn't want to put it down. I simply had to know what happened next.I have two small quibbles with the book. One, outside of the protagonist, the other characters read a bit like basic stereotypes. Two, sometimes the story gets a bit heavy handed describing the surroundings and in the dialog.I'm positive he' [...]

    Some faint comparison to string Larson.I like the reference.s to technology and the extreme physical challenges the protagonist uses for stress release, she seems to need to punish herself excessively and for such a strong women that seems out of character. Please come up with the sequal soon. And thank you for your original story.

    Peper doesn't disappoint in his 2nd Mara and James start-up thriller! What will happen next: I'm already reading the 3rd adventure to find out!!

    The first half of this book was really -- really -- slow. Unfortunately this author, as a new fiction writer, has fallen into the trilogy trap, where what would have been one exciting taut book is needlessly chunked into three books, artifically stopping the flow and weighting down the whole effort with too much stuff we don't care about. I for one don't a field guide to Boulder's various restaurants -- I can pick up a Lonely Planet if need be for that. After about the 50% mark, this second volu [...]

    Still fun, butBook two, read in the day following reading book one.It's still accurately describing the startup world, but now emphasizing the crime / whodunnit. That's ok, but it's worth noting in my review.Two slight exasperations:* There are a variety of bits of the book that are just writing for writing's sake. They don't advance the story; just give an aside about the mental state of the character. I'm not finding these additive to the book. A hard editor would cross out some whole sections [...]

    I enjoyed this more than the first one, maybe because I knew that "it" wouldn't be resolved by the end. There is a decent plot but some of the characters are a little too cookie-cutter; i.e. the "bad guy" is 100% a bad guy (at least so far). I look forward to the rest of the twists in the remaining book and finding out how the mystery gets resolved.
