The Kindle version business model canvas has tiny type; download it from the publisher's site in more bifocal-friendly form so you can use the Post-it note system. Do buy some small Post-it notes and print off a canvas before starting, unless you own a very large whiteboard. I dislike filler, but read the example stories in every chapter. They have useful info that helps you understand your own and your partners' motivation. This book doesn't go into intricacies of applying for loans or tax/permit filing. It's a guide to what to consider when making a startup plan, and how to research demand so you know your company has a viable product or service before embarrassing/bankrupting yourself and your partners.
Our class formed teams to create a startup plan for a viable small business. One instructor/peer grading criterion was "Would you loan startup capital to this team based on their proposal?" Following the instructions in this book, we got an A.
Aside from the content itself, I love the design and layout of the book, and it is a pleasure to read. I also love the fact that hundreds of people from all over the world contributed to the creation of this book.
