So I was expecting the book would have more of the same. It mostly does, and just like the podcasts, it's done in a very entertaining style. The difference is that the book is more of a user manual for your own life, than narratives about legendary tech start-ups. And I mean that in the best possible way.
Lots of great ideas and principles you COULD apply to the amazing start-up idea that you hope to turn into a unicorn. But more likely, you'll apply to your own life.
The nuggets that I got from this book are
1. “No” is a good response during fundraising
2. Do things that do not scale
3. Watch what they do, not what they say
The book is extremely well written, easy to read, and easy to extract the key points. I highly recommend it to any aspiring entrepreneur. I could write a lot more but I don’t have the time …. I gotta produce my first prototype… since I have a “bias toward action” ! :) (another great nugget from the book)
