I follow Dharmesh's blog religiously. His start-up advice and insights have been very practical, hands on info. He doesn't mince words. Dharmesh knows start-up ecosystem inside out. He is generous in sharing the info in lucid and interesting language. Most important for me, his posts are written in humorous language which makes it an easy read of otherwise very serious contents.

Most people who have been through few start-ups have probably experienced many of the advice firsthand or know about it. I find it very useful to use the material as reference (a subset of my check list) when I am brainstorming about a particular topic.

The current book is compilation of his many selected blog posts over years. You will find 360 degree advice on topics as diverse as finding co-founder chemistry (which most first time co-founders fail to appreciate) to how to avoid pit falls in software development projects.

Since the information is divided into "10 minute" chapters, a busy start-up player will be easily able to find time to read them. Feel free to read the chapters in any order you like unless they are on the same topic e.g. co-founders in which case you are better off reading those related chapters in sequence.

So I purchased a kindle for my mother for Christmas, and, as she is a technophobe, I thought I'd load it up with apps and books before I gave it to her. "On Startups" was the first thing I downloaded. Part of me reconsidered giving her the kindle, just so I could keep the book. Instead, I neglected my gift wrapping and tree trimming responsibilities just so I could finish it in time for the holiday, and it was well worth it. Not only was the book insightful and packed with practical information, but it was also written in a style that was accessible. Too often 'business' books are stuffy and condescending, but Dharmesh Shah has complied a series of his own and others' articles that are a pleasure to read and very inspirational. I felt like it was a friend giving me advice, as opposed to some professorial academic lecturing me. I highly recommend this book (and the website) for any budding entrepreneurs.

Absolutely enjoyed the book! I have been following Dharmesh via On Startups blog for several years

My favorite:

"Startup Advice from George Costanza: Do The Opposite"...

Early customer conversation: "Yeah, the software kind of sucks, but we use it ourselves, and it does do useful things. Why am I charging you to be a beta tester? Although your input is priceless, we think it just distorts the relationship for you to get it for free. If you're a paying customer, we're going to kill ourselves to make you happy."

Shah, Dharmesh (2012-12-02). On Startups: Advice and Insights for Entrepreneurs (Kindle Locations 3074-3076). Hyperink. Kindle Edition.
