    Great step-by-step breakdowns on beginning a start-up

    Thank you for writing such an awesome book; it's sometimes so hard to find a nice, sequential flow of aggregated advice, recommendations and personal experience about the start-up world and your book distinctively shouts loud and clear above a lot of start-up noise (because I hear a LOT of advice from numerous people of different professions and backgrounds).

    The beginning is a bit bashy about the realities of a real job; but I may be tainted because I've understood the cons aspects of finding a typical corporate 9-5 job as safe and secure for sometime and it sounded like a tape on rewind for me.

    However, as Scott began really delving into the tips and personal experiences of beginning a start-up, it began to be so very clear. With a shoestring budget, this book is a winner with even aggregated websites of rich resources (often times for free or low-cost) for things like financial budgeting, agreement doc templates, landing pages, etc. that I'd would have had to really scope out the internet and people for a while to get to the list. It's refreshing to know that his book explains the perspective behind specific choices towards a start-up with sources to get into action and a bit of psychology to get out of the "safe-zone" of simply sitting on a start-up idea, which I know happens quite often for concept stage entrepreneurs.

    I would recommend this book because the money saved from taking his perspective into account towards a biz makes a lot of sense and saves time, for anyone doing a start-up, I say this is a must-have in the personal library.

    more from this reviewer

    if you want to know how much you suck, read this book

    I'm halfway through this book and the only thimg the author has told me is that I'm a horrible person and have no reason to live, much less even think about running my own business. I get that he's trying to tell me it's going to be hard to do it, but it would be nice if here was more to the book than just shooting me down. Like maybe how I can be successful at running my own business instead of how I should just give it up!
