Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is a truly courageous book. It's one part business-building guide and two parts Indiana Jones-style adventure memoir. And if you've ever wondered if the 'timeless wisdom' you often hear about startups is bullsh*t, here's the proof." -- Chris Guillebeau, author of SIDE HUSTLE and THE $100 STARTUP

"You won't find a more honest, raw, and helpful look into the trenches of founding a tech startup than this book. Rand Fishkin shares the rare hard-won insight no one else dares tell you." -- Nir Eyal, author of HOOKED

"Most books on founders and entrepreneurship sell a Silicon Valley perspective. Yet the inclusive, egalitarian vision of tech that Rand shares is the one that will truly dent the world." -- Nilofer Merchant, author of THE POWER OF ONLYNESS

"Rand Fishkin is like the industry friend we all wish we had - funny, warm, and refreshingly honest about the rollercoaster ride that is founding your own company." -- Julie Zhou, VP of Product Design at Facebook

"Rand Fishkin is the real deal. This book is an honest, generous and useful look at what actually happens when you build a company, including the downs as well as the ups... I wish I had read it thirty years ago." -- Seth Godin, entrepreneur and author

About the Author

Rand Fishkin is the founder and former CEO of Moz. He co-authored a pair of books on SEO, co-founded the marketing website Inbound.org, and serves on the board of presentation software startup Haiku Deck. Rand's writing can be found mostly in short bursts on Twitter (@randfish), in longer ramblings on his personal blog (moz.com/rand), and, in photo-accompanying captions via the Instagram account (@theeverywhereist) he shares with his wife, Geraldine. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
