This is a book that every young (and old) entrepreneur should read for it dives into the realities, trial and tribulations of a start-up company and the stark reality that the visionary founder can also be a poor manager ......of people and of the organization. Definitely a lot of lessons learned that could make a new company thrive instead of dive. Well written too with a sense of humor.
