The authors of this book run a well-respected program for high tech entrepreneurs, but even if you're a not a software person, the tips in this book about starting, running, and planning a business are extremely valuable. So many of the chapters stick with me months after I listened, especially "fail fast." Some tips are complex and structural for how to set up a business. Other tips are light such as "don't suck at e-mail." A great education.

Which character ??? as performed by Sean Pratt ??? was your favorite?
I think learned the most from Alex White's multiple stories. No wonder he features so prominently in the book--he's a really smart businessman.
Any additional comments?
Everyone in the startup world and every entrepreneur regardless of whether you're in tech, bio, green, industry, or lemonade stands, should read this book. Each chapter is a lesson learned the hard way by a TechStars company founder. Plus, after each chapter David Cohen & Brad Feld (founders of TechStars) give their thoughts.

This is a book that any entrepreneur can get value from, even if simply to remind you of bad habits you’ve picked up over time. How valuable it is depends on whether or not you’ve already read or listened to his other books because there is a lot of content overlap.
This book is made up of short stories, each with an overarching lesson. Some of the stories are only relevant to US startups like incorporating in Delaware, but most of the info is universally useful.
