Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Nalebuff and his former student, Goldman, founded Honest Tea—a beverage company offering organic, freshly brewed, lightly sweetened bottled tea—which survived and succeeded to become an independent unit of Coca-Cola. Their aim was to establish a brand that would capitalize on the movement in the U.S. toward healthier, greener lifestyles—a mission-driven business in a highly competitive industry. The story is told in three parts, Start-Up, Growing Pains, and A Brand Emerges, with a thought-provoking set of Lessons Learned after each section. The book is rich in tips and instructions using an engaging graphic-novel format for generations of comic-book enthusiasts among entrepreneurs, would-be entrepreneurs, and customers. This is detailed advice stemming from the authors’ 15-year adventure, during which their setbacks could have brought down a similarly situated company. Goldman and Nalebuff explain how we survived our mistakes and bad luck to still be around when the good fortune arose. A timely book for a wide range of library patrons. --Mary Whaley

Review

“Stories of American business start-ups are a dime a dozen, which makes margins on them very thin. This might be why this graphic book about Honest Tea from its co-founders Seth Goldman and Barry Nalebuff feels like their products – a little unsweetened and, well, honest.” - Financial Times

“Seth and Barry have translated the wild, often lonely entrepreneural adventure into a delightfully candid and accessible read for anyone interested in starting or growing a business. Like their beautiful drinks, this book is refreshingly honest.”
—Gary Hirshberg, Co-founder and Chairman, Stonyfield Farm
                                        
“If you run a business, work for a business, want to know how business works, or are thinking of starting a business, READ THIS BOOK! It’s a great story, and the good guys win.”
—Andrew Tobias, The Only Investment Guide You’ll Ever Need

"The honest voices of Seth and Barry coupled with the humanity of each scene drew me in and made it easy to read this brilliant business book disguised as a comic. A must-read for budding or well-rooted entrepreneurs—or really anyone interested in what happens behind the scenes at a start-up. I loved it!"
—Shazi Visram, Founder and CEO of Happy Family
 
"When Seth left Calvert to launch Honest Tea, I was puzzled how a bottled tea venture could be so meaningful. Now I know. Mission in a Bottle is a courageous, engaging, and frank story around his inspiring example of social entrepreneurship. I read it in one sitting."
—Wayne Silby, Founding Chair, Calvert Funds

“Seth and Barry have crafted a rich and compelling story and told it with the perfect blend of inspiration and humility. For anybody who has started a business—and especially those considering an entrepreneurial path—MISSION IN A BOTTLE is a must-read.”
—Daniel Pink, author of To Sell is Human and Drive

An utterly engrossing story of the frustrations and ecstasies involved in transforming a simple idea into a hugely successful bsuiness. Anyone who has ever been curious about the inner-workings of a start-up will find this intimate account both refreshing and--need it be said?--honest.
- Joshua Foer, author of Moonwalking with Einstein
