I downloaded this book because I am a small business owner and I thought it might inspire me. I didn't expect it to make me laugh out loud. It did both. I listened to it on a recent plane flight, and the journey flew (sorry) by. I actually just went to Amazon and bought a few copies to give as gifts to friends. It's the kind of book you can give to those friends who say "I don't read books" (it's short! tell them) and also to those snooty literary friends who say "I never read 'business' books." (He's a good storyteller, tell them.) The one accurate comment in the review above is that the interivew at the end is amazing. This isn't one of those "I did it and so can you" books... you don't feel like you've just been to a seminar, you feel like you just met a pretty interesting guy at a dinner party who told you what he's been up to for the past few years. And then you sit back and digest what he said and realize you've actually learned a thing or two about running (or starting) your own company. And especially about managing crazy geniuses.

A few good points in the beginning about the authenticity of business ideas, the rest of the "success" reasons are tend to throw and generalize people in clear-cut "fit" and "unfit" categories, pointing out qualities that may prevent one from staying lucky. Maybe a a 5 star for someone right out of college, but not for a seasoned entrepreneur. Below expectations.
