Summary and Review:
I quite liked this book. Like you would expect, it was roughly 30% case studies, 30% motivational fluff, and 30% actionable content. There were several good internal documents such as the One-Page Business Plan and The 39-Step Product Launch Checklist. Several case studies were given for people who had started successful business on shoestring budgets, even a few i had heard of before like Tom Bihn and Benny the Irish Polyglot.
Guillebeau’s style is conversational, easy to read, and infused with just enough personality to stay engaging. I think it’s a solid book for someone with entrepreneurial leanings.
