This book could best be considered a time-saver. The author does a great job of laying out the necessary steps of getting from 'idea' to 'cash'. Each chapter is simple and focused on one aspect of building your business. The list of references to web sites and additional material is worth the price of the book in the amount of time saved thatotherwise would be spent looking for the information. My only complaint abuot the book (and the reason it only gets 4 stars instead of 5) is the references to primarily Microsoft technology. There isn't much, if any, reference to the open source world of Linux, Apache, PHP, MySQL and other similar technologies in use in many web-based businesses. Therefore, some of the specific tools that are recommended wouldn't apply. Overall, a great book that I would recommend if you want to see what is involved in launching a company of one or a few.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I just yesterday picked up this book, and I have to tell you, that if you want to start an internet business selling your own software product, you gotta buy this book and read it a few times! I'm only one-third the way through and I find it hard to put down. This is unusual, as I read technical books rather in fits and starts (because they're frequently fairly boring while being useful nevertheless), but this book is well written, highly informative, interesting, and so on. Walsh went to the trouble of interviewing a number of successful micro-ISV'ers and including the interviews in the book. And I just have to say it: this book is pure gold. HIGHLY recommended.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
