A book on how not to run a startup,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Why Startups Fail: And How Yours Can Succeed (Paperback)
I borrowed this book from a local library, but liked it so much that decided to buy a copy.
It's quite different from lots of other books covering similar topics. It's organized as a collection of 1-2 page articles or short case studies on what not to do when running a startup.
I've been working in the tech industry for over a decade, including a couple of successful Silicon Valley startups, and already encountered with most of the things mentioned in the book: lack of focus, when to pivot, avoiding small markets, product-market fit, turnover, lack of capital, etc. But still, it's convenient to have all that material available in a concise, structured, and easy-to-reference form.
