    Great Resource for Startups

    Brad Feld and David Cohen have put together an excellent resource for entrepreneurs. I've worked for a startup and co-founded a startup and I can relate to many of the stories in the book. I appreciated the quote, "Startups are about testing theories and quickly pivoting based on feedback and data." That is so true. We are in the process of pivoting, right now. One thing that I read that holds particular significance for me is, "Get feedback early." If we would have gotten more feedback from our target market with Impirus, we might have chosen a different vertical. Here are some other truths in the book; 1) Focus on one thing and do it really well 2) Listen to customers 3) Focus on ease of use 4) Get external accountability. We have implemented those ideas with success. I think that everyone who is going to start a business, or who has already started one will appreciate this book.

    Do More Faster

    Brad Feld and David Cohen have created a "must read" blockbuster for every aspiring tech entrepreneur. But it's a bit of a misnomer to attribute this seminal entry into entrepreneurship literature, to these two guys. Because Feld and Cohen have turned web 2.0 "crowd-sourcing" on themselves, and used it to create a terrific, wide-ranging collection of solid advice and insights for aspiring tech entrepreneurs.

    What they've done is, publish the collective wisdom of their entrepreneurial network - based in Boulder - but now reaching out to Boston, Seattle, NYC, (and who knows where, next) - to aspire every young tech entrepreneur - even if those entrepreneurs don't have "tech experience".

    This ground-breaking book is jam-packed with wisdom, solid advice, and great insights. I recommend every new tech startup team - whether they are a young, first-time startup team, or not - make a detailed study of the wealth of great advice and insights, contained in this book.

    All you need, according to Feld & Cohen - is the right "heart" - not necessarily including technical experience.

    Is this going to be a "hot book"? Only the wizards of the publishing industry know, for sure.

    If you're fascinated by entrepreneurship - what to do, and what NOT to do - then read this book, and enjoy!

    Has breadth, need to work on depth

    This book is great to get a general idea of what tech entrepreneurs go through. I must say the book is lacking in depth. Without white space and photos this would be probably not more than 100 pages. This would be a good first read. If you want more depth check out 'the 4 hour work week' (2nd edition) or a whole lotta depth check out 'Lean Startup' by Eric Ries.
