About the Author

Author of the Four Steps to the Epiphany, Steve Blank's path has taken him from repairing fighter planes in Thailand during the Vietnam War, to spook stuff in undisclosed location(s). He was lucky enough to arrive at the beginning of the boom times of Silicon Valley in 1978. After 21 years in 8 high technology companies, he retired in 1999. He started his last company, E.piphany, in his living room in 1996. His other startups include two semiconductor companies, Zilog and MIPS Computers, a workstation company Convergent Technologies, a consulting stint for a graphics hardware/software spinout Pixar, a supercomputer firm, Ardent, a computer peripheral supplier, SuperMac, a military intelligence systems supplier, ESL and a video game company, Rocket Science Games. Steve moved from being an entrepreneur to teaching entrepreneurship to both undergraduate and graduate students at U.C. Berkeley, Stanford University and the Columbia University/Berkeley Joint Executive MBA program. The Customer Development model that he developed for his classes became the text the Four Steps to the Epiphany. In 2009, Steve was awarded the Stanford University Undergraduate Teaching Award in the department of Management Science and Engineering. The same year, the San Jose Mercury News listed Steve as one of the 10 Influencers in Silicon Valley.

I got this as a gift, and I admit I was skeptical--I thought it would be a ramble. Instead, I found an engaging collection of blog entries. My favorites were the Secret Histories of Silicon Valley. Seeing them all together and organized in a book again points out that old media can be better than new media.

It's a great book to have sitting around to read anytime you have a spare couple of hours on a lazy afternoon.

I have to admit, some of the pictures are lower quality that I would desire, and I do miss the comments. But, you can always go to his online blog for that.

As a fan of his Four Steps to the Epiphany (his other book), I enjoyed gaining a deeper insight into how he thinks.

I am a history buff and came across this book almost by accident. A good friend loaned me this book, and I became quite engrossed in the section on the history of silicon valley. The writing could use some editing, but the story comes across like an old John McPhee New Yorker article. It has the right level of detail and insight into (I think) a little known story of the roots of silicon valley. I have lived in Silicon Valley for years, and I never even thought about its history, because I thought I knew it (shockley...fairchild,,,), I was wrong. Totally a much more interesting story.

There are other sections on being an entrepreneur which also were quite easy to read and presented a more modern history in microcosm of silicon valley by tracing the author's career and his thoughts on how to grow a startup by developing the customer side of the business.

So all in all, I would recommend giving this book as a gift to your friends and family; especially those on the east coast who wonder why you live out here in silicon valley.

This book is quite amazing, because Steve Blank organized his thought in a different but useful way.
When I was reading their blogs, there's some pattern in every one of them, when you read him in that moment you realize his entrepreneur brain.

Recommended!
