More uncommon common sense from the bestselling author of The Art of the Start.
In Silicon Valley slang, a “bozo explosion” is what causes a lean, mean, fighting machine of a company to slide into mediocrity. As Guy Kawasaki puts it, “If the two most popular words in your company are partner and strategic, and partner has become a verb, and strategic is used to describe decisions and activities that don’t make sense” . . . it’s time for a reality check.
For nearly three decades, Kawasaki has earned a stellar reputation as an entrepreneur, venture capitalist, and irreverent pundit. His 2004 bestseller, The Art of the Start, has become the most acclaimed bible for small business. And his blog is consistently one of the fifty most popular in the world.
Now, Kawasaki has compiled his best wit, wisdom, and contrarian opinions in handy book form. From competition to customer service, innovation to marketing, he shows readers how to ignore fads and foolishness while sticking to commonsense practices. He explains, for instance:
· How to get a standing ovation
· The art of schmoozing
· How to create a community
· The top ten lies of entrepreneurs
· Everything you wanted to know about getting a job in Silicon Valley but didn’t know who to ask
Provocative, useful, and very funny, this “no bull shiitake” book will show you why readers around the world love Guy Kawasaki.

Guy Kawasaki, who helped make Macintosh a household name, now runs Garage Technology Ventures, a venture-capital firm. He has held his workshop, “Boot Camp for Start-ups,” around the world. Kawasaki is the author of seven previous books, including Rules for Revolutionaries.
A veteran tech entrepreneur, venture capitalist, and commentator on Silicon Valley culture offers real-world advice on how the best companies are started, funded, and run. Though the diversity of topics gives this audio a stream-of-consciousness flow, the material actually covers many complicated topics with cohesion. The advice, all of it succinct and immediately digestible, is on every start-up challenge imaginable from organizing venture-capital presentations to hiring, collaborating, marketing, and managing talent. The author s blunt opinions and colloquial language make listening a breeze. Paul Boehmer s energetic reading contributes to the author s streetwise vibe. Boehmer's quick pacing and smart-aleck tone are good vehicles for pouring out Kawasaki s potent no-nonsense advice. --AudioFile
