"This book is much more than you may think it is. Scale is not just about designing Web sites that donrs"t crash when lots of users show up. It is about designing your company so that it doesnrs"t crash when your business needs to grow. These guys have been there on the front lines of some of the most successful Internet companies of our time, and they share the good, the bad, and the ugly about how to not just survive, but thrive." Marty Cagan, Founder, Silicon Valley Product Group "A must read for anyone building a Web service for the mass market." Dana Stalder, General Partner, Matrix Partners "Abbott and Fisher have deep experiences with scale in both large and small enterprises. Whatrs"s unique about their approach to scalability is they start by focusing on the true foundation: people and process, without which true scalability cannot be built. Abbott and Fisher leverage their years of experience in a very accessible and practical approach to scalability that has been proven over time with their significant success." Geoffrey Weber, VP of Internet Operations/IT, Shutterfly "If I wanted the best diagnoses for my health I would go to the Mayo Clinic.

Having built several projects, programs, and companies from small to significant scale, I can honestly say I wish I had this book one, five, and ten years ago." Jeremy Wright, CEO, b5media, Inc. "Only a handful of people in the world have experienced the kind of growth-related challenges that Fisher and Abbott have seen at eBay, PayPal, and the other companies theyrs"ve helped to build. Fewer still have successfully overcome such challenges.TheArt of Scalabilityprovides a great summary of lessons learned while scaling two of the largest internet companies in the history of the space, and itrs"s a must-read for any executive at a hyper-growth company. Whatrs"s more, itrs"s well-written and highly entertaining. I couldnrs"t put it down." Kevin Fortuna, Partner, AKF Consulting "Marty and Mikers"s book covers all the bases, from understanding how to build a scalable organization to the processes and technology necessary to run a highly scalable architecture.
