Praise for [ MY START-UP LIFE ] "This is a remarkable book for so many reasons. First, it is overflowing with incredible advice and perspective. Beyond that, it is written with the kind of style and grace that you usually find in a great essay or novel. If you have any interest in entrepreneurship or business, for that matter-you'll definitely want to read this." -Patrick Lencioni, author, The Five Dysfunctions of a Team "You will enjoy this provocative, honest, and fun romp through an entrepreneurial achievement, which will leave you determined to embark on your own enterprising endeavor-and inspired to find your own way to make a difference." -Marc Benioff, CEO and chairman, salesforce.com "I was blown away by how much learning Ben has packed into his (relatively) short entrepreneurial life-and how engagingly and effectively he passes it on in this book. This is such a fun read that you won't even realize how much you are learning. A must-read for first-time entrepreneurs, but equally enjoyable for fellow travelers who have already been down these roads." -Heidi Roizen, managing director, Mobius Venture Capital "This is an inspiring perspective on the dynamics of succeeding in Silicon Valley. You may as well read this book today, because sooner or later we are all going to end up working for Ben." -Chris Sacca, head of Strategic Initiatives, Google Inc. "A disarming story of the ups and downs of a business from startup to sustainability, filled with reflections on practical business and personal issues facing any entrepreneur. I recommend it to my students as a refreshingly honest account of the rollercoaster ride of startup entrepreneurship." -Deborah Streeter, Bruce F.
