In 80 pages of entertaining reading, Bo gets down to the essence of entrepreneurial success in a direct and candid manner. I've been involved in venture capital for over 15 years and worked with hundreds of teams and think Bo has hit the nail on the head.
Bo's insights as both and company founder and now a venture capitalist are right on the money and will resonate with those born with the entrepreneur gene everywhere. It's not a how-to manual but it will focus your thinking on what you need to do to improve your chances for entreprenurial success in your current or next business venture.
Successful entrepreneurs and their venture capital investors will find themselves nodding in agreement on almost every page. If you don't find yourself doing the same when you read it, give a copy to a successful entrepreneur or venture capitalist that you know and trust, then ask their opinion.
An essential read for every entrepreneur. --Paul McManus (Boston, MA USA)
This is one of the best business books I've ever read. It conveys highly insightful, meaningful ideas in a remarkably concise and common-sense way. No droaning on with complex business models or contrived new management theories. Peabody simply shares his views of what makes a successful entrepreneur and manager, and the importance of understanding the value of diverse personalities and skill sets. The ideas it contains are motivating, entertaining and invaluable. I've purchased several copies for colleagues. I highly recommend it.

If you are interested in reading a story about how a perhaps slightly above average start-up became grossly overvalued, this is your book. If on the other hand you are searching for "Secrets to an Entrepreneurial Life", don't waste your time or $5 on this "book".
Wonderful anecdote about applying to and getting in to college.
