That's when they'll want to get a copy of "Start Love Repeat." The author has been through this herself as the spouse of an entrepreneur. She knows how hard it can be. But in addition to offering empathy, she passes along her wisdom to others, so perhaps they won't have to suffer quite as much as she did. She does it in an easy-to-read, conversational style that's backed up by lots of interviews with entrepreneurial families and therapists. The book chapters are cleverly arranged to be familiar to anyone who has been through the startup experience, with sections such as "Market Research" and "Scaling Up."
I really enjoyed all the glimpses into the lives of the entrepreneurial spouses/partners Cheng-Tozun interviewed, as well as the picture of her own life married to an entrepreneur, and appreciated how honest she was about what worked and what didn't.
