In a review of the new book Founders at Work: Stories of Startups' Early Days, Guy Kawasaki highlights a few of the stories and anecdotes he found most interesting -- especially those that involved the interaction between start-up founders and deep-pocketed venture capitalists. If you have any interest in how companies like Flickr, TiVo, Research in Motion or Yahoo! got their start -- as well as the type of inner conviction needed to overcome hundreds of naysayers and skeptics -- this book is a must-read. In fact, Guy Kawasaki says that the book has broken his record for the "book with the most stickies":
"This is a picture of my copy of Founders at Work: Stories of Startups’ Early Days. It has broken my record for the “book with most stickies.” My system is that the stickies on the top edge are ideas for my next book, and the ones on the side are ideas for this blog. As you can see, it’s a gold mine for great stories about entrepreneurship. Here is a list of some of my favorites. The major lesson: Entrepreneurship is all about tactics, chutzpah, not knowing that things are not done “this way,” and making do with not enough money."
