As someone who is just starting a company, this book was incredibly valuable. In fact, it was so useful that I kept interrupting my reading to open up my laptop and take down notes. I found it hard to stay focused! This is a MUST READ for any entrepreneur.

The Startup Owners Manual is a go-to reference for anyone hoping to create a successful new business. Even the greatest ideas need guidance to grow, and this book offers just that: tested models for building a business model that attracts and keeps the customers you need, and at the same time is scalable, repeatable and profitable. This book encourages you to forget all you’ve learned at other jobs, and to step outside – outside your office and your comfort zone – to intuit what your prospective customers need. Then the authors draw on decades of hard-earned experience and wisdom to help guide you along the path to entrepreneurial success.
