Format: Paperback
As a recently laid off engineer, this book gave me insights into starting my company that I didn't think possible. The author's perspective couples deep provacative thoughts with pragmatic real world suggestions that are easy to implement. I highly, highly recommend this book for anyone thinking of changing careers during these tough times and find the next big thing!!

It is rare to find good books written from authors on similar subject which have also a current practice. The author is from top law company and knows how the things works from inside. I find the book very well written and useful to me and opened my eyes to many problems only an experienced attorney can know.

This book covers almost all essential points on how to start a high-tech business. I learned a lot from it. It would be helpful if it can include more recent and specific examples.
