Could have gone one more round towards product market fit

As it stands, the books isn't just a guide and a textbook, it is also (trying to be) memoir, War of Art, Seth Godin, collection of quotes and probably a bit more.

Probably more suitable for airport paperback use; grab it, jump around, skim a bit, read a bit, underline some stuff, pick it up a month later and read some more.

“Failure hurts, but failing is a part of the free market. It is a part of economic renewal. The nature of my business, and venture capital in itself requires me to accept failure. By my estimates, I have failed about 600 times to date. A willingness to fail allows me to take bigger risks with my investments, which on the whole has generated more extraordinary returns than if I had not been willing to fail. Nevertheless, I have experienced a few enormous failures that were hard to walk away from and equally hard to learn from. Here is one:” 0 likes
