really liked it
Read from May 28 to June 22, 2012

I enjoyed this book a bit more than Guillebeau's The Art of Non-Conformity: Set Your Own Rules, Live the Life You Want, and Change the World. The fun of the $100 startup is that it has a diverse array of great stories of entrepreneurs striking out on their own with little in the way of a plan or financial investment. While I think Guillebeau's story and manifesto are interesting in their own right, I really enjoyed hearing from lots of other people about their struggles and victories in trying to build a small business. It was refreshing to me that not all (or even half) of the folks Guillebeau interviewed for the book were peddlers of 'information products' like blogs, DVDs, or books. One guy opens a coffee shop, another makes beautiful maps, while another opens a knitting shop. The sheer breadth of the different businesses profiled is what make this book successful as both an inspiration and a guide to folks curious about working for themselves
