"The book with the most stickies"
\n In a review of the new book Founders at Work: Stories of Startups' Early Days, Guy Kawasaki highlights a few of the stories and anecdotes he found most interesting -- especially those that involved the interaction between start-up founders and deep-pocketed venture capitalists. If you have any interest in how companies like Flickr, TiVo, Research in Motion or Yahoo! got their start -- as well as the type of inner conviction needed to overcome hundreds of naysayers and skeptics -- this book is a must-read. In fact, Guy Kawasaki says that the book has broken his record for the "book with the most stickies":
"This is a picture of my copy of Founders at Work: Stories of Startups’ Early Days.\nIt has broken my record for the "book with most stickies." My system is\nthat the stickies on the top edge are ideas for my next book, and the\nones on the side are ideas for this blog. As you can see, it’s a gold mine for great stories about\nentrepreneurship. Here is a list of some of my favorites. The major\nlesson: Entrepreneurship is all about tactics, chutzpah, not\nknowing that things are not done "this way," and making do with not\nenough money."

Quick: think back to childhood (if you've reached the scary clown you've gone too far). What did your parents or guardians give you to keep you quiet? If you're anything like most parents, it was juice. But here's the thing: juice is bad for you.
