5.0 out of 5 stars Love the stainless steel design, April 30, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I cannot stand the taste of plastic-y water. The double-walled stainless design is huge for me. Finally, water tastes like water, not plastic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Embrace Your Inner Doodler & Visual Thinking, January 9, 2014
Sunni Brown's writing is fun, irreverent but ultimately to the point.

I find it refreshing to see Sunni carefully articulate how doodling can help you think more clearly and solve problems by embracing visual thinking. I loved The Doodle Revolution and would encourage anyone doing creative work to grab a copy ASAP.

5.0 out of 5 stars Growth Hacking going mainstream, September 3, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It is perfectly fitting that the guy who wrote the book on media-hacking has now written the book on growth-hacking. Stemming from his experience and hacking growth creatively at American Apparel and with his clients and friends such as Tim Ferriss and folding in stories from innovative companies finding growth in innovative ways, Growth Hacker Marketing is the best way to get up to speed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Viciously funny and incisive, June 3, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Choose Yourself! (Kindle Edition)
James cuts through the BS surrounding the ostensible American Dream, and its waning relevance. Equal parts self-deprecation, tragi-comedy, economic insight and personal development. If you are already familiar with James' work, gift this Kindle to someone you cheapskate.

5.0 out of 5 stars You are your own Greatest Challenge, January 22, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Flinch (Kindle Edition)
The Flinch should bother you because it exposes the lie we all love to live: that someone or something else is responsible for our lack of success/fulfillment/X...

But deep inside, you know that you, yourself, are your greatest challenge and handicap. This hurts.

But then, no one said that the truth won't hurt.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pushing boundaries and innovating, November 20, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The 4-Hour Chef is another manifestation of Tim Ferriss pushing boundaries by innovating and hacking-- whether it be in biohacking, lifestyle design or publishing great books. The 4-Hour Chef is a new form and new style of knowledge transfer being pioneered by Tim. Kudos to Tim.

Anyone concerned with hacking self-improvement on many levels -- order this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Capstone in Permanent Disruption of Entrepreneurial Education, March 22, 2012
The Startup Owner's Manual along with Steve Blank's Lean Launchpad class syllabus [...], his blog and his many lectures captured on video, are part and parcel of Steve Blank's vision to disrupt how entrepreneurship is taught worldwide.

The Startup Owner's Manual delivers on that vision by virtue of disruption from the inside out. It looks, feels and smells like a textbook, yet it is a Trojan Horse that is carefully designed to deliver the killing blow to ubiquitous totem of entrepreneurial education, the 40 page business plan.

The book is easy to read and comprehensive, it manages both the macro-meta and the micro topics amazingly well.

Building on his earlier work The Four Steps to the Epiphany: Successful Strategies for Products that Win and Alexander Osterwalder's Business Model Generation: A Handbook for Visionaries, Game Changers, and Challengers, The Startup Owner's Manual successfully abstracts strategies and tactics for searching for a repeatable, scalable business model.

It is still early days in the worldwide entrepreneurial renaissance happening around us -- a few years from now, we will look back and see The Startup Owner's Manual as a seminal text in the new experiential and inquiry-based methods of entrepreneurship education.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cutting through the morass of entrepreneurship mythology, September 13, 2011
Simply put, the book is fantastic. The other reviewers have, for the most part, done it justice. So, I'll make this very short: it is worth it's weight in gold alone for the simple fact that it destroys the media-myth-making of the plucky entrepreneur who creates the future on vis-a-vis singular genius and intuition. If you have any entrepreneurial leanings at all, get it today.
