I really like this book. The real life examples put theory to the test. Other than the sometimes annoying "shout out" to the Harvard Business School, this book was very interesting. It allows you to learn from the real life decisions that were needed to start, survive and cash out three real life businesses. Its good for anyone doubting their potential entrepreneurial abilities.
I'm hours in and he has yet to get to the point. So far it's simply a bunch of stories of entrepreneurs that have yet to have any significance. Save your money. This book is a complete waste.

This book is very interestingly telling the stories of three different entrepreneurs. From this aspect, it is a good and interesting multi-biography. I like interesting biographies and believe they are contributing.
However, this is far from the book's claim for fame, which is to teach you how to be an intelligent entrepreneur. It does not do that, and if you expect that you will get very little of what you expect. In fact several other books I listened to in the last year or so are EACH doing a better job in this sense, and maybe I should mention: The Lean Startup, Venture Deals, Do More Faster, and Startup CEO.

I loved that this book was written from real events
Very relevant sets of ideas for an entrepreneur.
Wonderfully shares the background, struggles, growth and success of 3 very different real life entrepreneurs. I especially enjoyed the back story pre-Harvard, the obvious benefits of attending (as well as the obvious minor flaws of the institution) as well as the different path the 3 took after school. There was a good balance between the highs of success and the lows of the climb upward. The book achieves it's goal of convincing you that entrepreneurship can be learned. PS I listen at 2 or 3X so the 'performance' was fine for me but I cannot judge what normal speed sounded like. A case study in life and business for us novices.
For people who wants to go into entrepreneurship. This book will give you insight into the entrepreneurship journey. The ups and downs, the trials and tribulations.
