Business Book, actually pretty good

March 18th, 2011 (10:41 pm)

I'm mostly finished up with Reality Check by Guy Kawasaki, and while I tend to find business books short on content, and high on fluff and smug (</vastgeneralization>), I have to recommend this one. Snarky, direct, honest, and believe me, it's refreshing to read once in a while that work and drive are important, but life is much more than work, that college should not be approached as a stepping stone to an occupation, that a bad job situation/partnership/business plan is not worth sticking with, and that having a really good product is what really matters - the rest is just converting people to your passion. Beyond that, lots of solid practical advice with a focus on being honest, treating other people well, and marking measurable instead of imagined progress (or decline).

Anyway! Recommended.

Sounds like a good one, though.!
