it was ok
bookshelves: don-t-own

While most of us were experiencing the trials and tribulations that come with high school life, Ben Casnocha was already the chairman of his second company, Comcate. In fact, he was nominated for Inc. Magazine's "Entrepreneur of the Year" at the ripe age of 16. While that is indeed an impressive feat, I thought his book was a bit of a let down.

The book contains a jumbled array of insights from Ben's "Braintrust", who are essentially his mentors. There are also several sections called "Brainstorm" that offer practical advice on business and life. However, most of the advice and insight was pretty shallow.
