Reviews of The Art of the Start 

1. Rating 5/5

“The Art of the Start” positions as perhaps the best book around regarding the matter of startups. It focuses on any business visionary or start-up pioneer in a brilliant way. Like all of Mr. Kawasaki’s books I’ve perused, it is truly decipherable, to the point, and loaded up with precious data. You simply must be at a point in your vocation/life where your experience enables you to hear Guy’s message. This book applies to any startup – including those that don’t wish to seek after VC or other value financing alternatives. Fellow makes it copiously certain that VC may not be justified, despite all the trouble for some associations.
I presume the awful audits are from wannabees who haven’t been-there or done-that. It is anything but a fill-in-the-clear formula book flooding with minutia that a few analysts figure it ought to be, but instead it contains a wide message. A core value of sorts. Mr. Kawasaki can’t like to pass on a reasonable message if he’s investing all his energy in the dreariness of bookkeeping, item valuing or promoting subtleties. For instance, tune in to his message and keep on the correct side of the money bend while bootstrapping. On the off chance that you need the subtleties on income, item valuing, edges, and stock administration, then purchase a book regarding the matter. Or then again even better, as Guy recommends, discover somebody like a heavenly attendant to help and coach you.
Good karma and endeavor to transform the world.

2. Rating 4.5/5

I think this is a standout amongst other startup books out there – and Kawasaki’s best book. Be that as it may, it is anything but a book for everybody.The attention is on tech business visionaries. While a significant part of the counsel applies to other enterprises, the book will hit the bullseye explicitly with those starting innovation organizations.
Another thing about this book: parts of it contain guidance for those looking for financing from holy messenger and VC speculators. Since that covers a minor level of the pioneering populace, it’s focused on a thin specialty.
In any case, regardless of whether you pick never to look for speculation financing, despite everything I suggest the book. Why? Since financial specialists pose hard inquiries. The sort of reasoning you have to do to fulfill financial specialists is the sort of thorough reasoning more business visionaries ought to accomplish for themselves. That is to say, why trick yourself about the market potential for your startup, or about whether you’ve even considered cost projections?
The book is written in a smart show no mercy style. Now and again it’s mocking and snarky. You won’t get a great deal of pampering or compassion in this book. In case you’re searching for good help, or delicate tutoring, or supporting congratulatory gestures to energize you along … all things considered, you’re not going to discover quite a bit of that here.
No, “Art of the Start” is progressively similar to a kick in the jeans. Be that as it may, now and again a kick in the jeans is actually what a startup business visionary needs.

Inside this book:

I use a top-ten list format for all my speeches, and I would love to begin this book with a top-ten list of the most important things an entrepreneur must accomplish. However, there aren’t ten—there are only five:

  • 1. MAKE MEANING (inspired by John Doerr). The best reason to start an organization is to make meaning—to create a product or service that makes the world a better place. So your first task is to decide how you can make meaning.
  • 2. MAKE MANTRA. Forget mission statements; they’re long, boring, and irrelevant. No one can ever remember them—much less implement them. Instead, take your meaning and make a mantra out of it. This will set your entire team on the right course.
  • 3. GET GOING. Start creating and delivering your product or service. Think soldering irons, compilers, hammers, saws, and AutoCAD— whatever tools you use to build products and services. Don’t focus on pitching, writing, and planning.
  • 4. DEFINE YOUR BUSINESS MODEL. No matter what kind of organization you’re starting, you have to figure out a way to make money. The greatest idea, technology, product, or service is short-lived without a sustainable business model.
  • 5. WEAVE A MAT (MILESTONES, ASSUMPTIONS, AND TASKS). The final step is to compile three lists: (a) major milestones you need to meet; (b) assumptions that are built into your business model; and(c) tasks you need to accomplish to create an organization. This will enforce discipline and keep your organization on track when all hell breaks loose—and all hell will break loose.
