A must read for Entrepreneurs and their Spouses,
This review is from: Startup Life: Surviving and Thriving in a Relationship with an Entrepreneur (Hardcover)
As a newly married serial entrepreneur launching a new startup I found the tools and perspective shared in Startup Life to be extremely appropriate and timely. Previously, over the past decade I have co-founded and helped to build two companies 8 figure revenues but I did so while single. My wife Kathryn and I were married last May and there is always a challenge for a passionate entrepreneur to balance his/her two loves; their spouse and their company.
Brad Feld and Amy Batchelor are honest about challenges all entrepreneurial couples face and provide practical tools and perspective to keep a thriving romantic relationship while building a future together. I purchased another copy of this book for my wife so we can keep them both in our respective libraries. She and I received so much value from our experience that we purchased 10 more copies (in addition to the 2 we purchased for ourselves) to give to our friends and family who are embarking on similar journeys.
You owe it to the most important person in your life to buy this book and read it together. A happy spouse allows for freedom of creativity that can only help to improve the product offering you are bringing to the world. So, in short BUY THIS BOOK, and consciously integrate habits to make the most out of your two loves.

Clearly one should take Bullelephant's personal attack above with a grain of salt. He cannot possibly be a voracious reader worthy of anyone's trust on the topic of literature using "words" like "ya" and "yer"; not to mention his complete avoidance of comma use. The comment appears to be a personal attack on the author, and not an accurate or coherent critique on the book in question.

David K Brown (AKA Bullelephant),
I understand you are in your late 60s, and judging by a brief search of your work history and relationship history (with Val) I don't blame the ignorance of your initial post, or this reply. The world has changed a lot in the last few decades.
In the future I would encourage you to leave reviews as if you had your actual name in your signature (as I do). Your posts are not anonymous and anyone with 5 minutes and an internet connection can easily discover the "man behind the anonymous username" and all associated information. There is nothing more to say to you. I left a positive review for a book that my wife and I enjoyed, and you resorted to inaccurate/rambling personal attacks.
Best of luck to you and your wife for the remainder of your journey.

Wow you outed me...Or so you think....and actually well...Ill leave it at that... Clearly you are a Boulder trust funder who has reviewed and read just one book in their life...Or is it just pay back to Brad. Cause frankly I don't believe you read books.....Is that why you are so angry? Exposed....
where high school athletes...connect with college coaches...See you just posted your second ever review.,,,and a real book to boot. You must have enjoyed it? First ever I'll bet....
The fact remains Brad writes woid (sic) salads and because he is the Pied Piper of Boulder his acolytes (most of who have never read nor reviewed a book before ) post glowing reviews. Kinda sad but then Bould is a trust fund dumb for prep school dummies who finished int he bottom quarter of their class...except fo course for the Boulder jocks who mostly ain't attainted a fifth grade edication.....
