's review

it was amazing

5 stars - this is a very frank honest write up of a business journey. For a founder to accept his own limits is unheard of.
I just have one question: if the initial round of funding was as low as 25k - why would the author not buy a smaller house and more stock of his own idea?

The book reads like a novel and i suggest this for almost everyone for it's simplicity and honesty.
I hope I would be able to meet Mr. Randolph sometime and shake his hand. Thank you for sharing your journey.

62.5% "I am surprised by the author's honesty. It takes courage and self awareness to write what he has written. He does not get into details of his feelings or his family - but what comes through is the amount of hardwork and love the author feels for his idea."
