Publishers Description
A new product, a new service, a new company, a new division, a new organization, a new anything--where there's a will, here's the way. It begins with a dream that just won't quit, the once-in-a-lifetime thunderbolt of pure inspiration, the obsession, the world-beater, the killer app, the next big thing. Everyone who wants to make the world a better place becomes possessed by a grand idea.
But what does it take to turn your idea into action? Whether you are an entrepreneur, intrapreneur, or not-for-profit crusader, there's no shortage of advice available on issues such as writing a business plan, recruiting, raising capital, and branding. In fact, there are so many books, articles, and Web sites that many startups get bogged down to the point of paralysis. Or else they focus on the wrong priorities and go broke before they discover their mistakes. In "The Art of the Start, " Guy Kawasaki brings two decades of experience as one of business's most original and irreverent strategists to offer the essential guide for anyone starting anything, from a multinational corporation to a church group. At Apple in the 1980s, he helped lead one of the great companies of the century, turning ordinary consumers into evangelists. As founder and CEO of Garage Technology Ventures, a venture capital firm, he has field-tested his ideas with dozens of newly hatched companies. And as the author of bestselling business books and articles, he has advised thousands of people who are making their startup dreams real. From raising money to hiring the right people, from defining your positioning to creating a brand, from creating buzz to buzzing the competition, from managing a board to fostering a community, this book will guide you through an adventure that's more art than science--the art of the start.

How Anyone Can Achieve Anything  Nov 23, 2008
"The Time-Tested, Battle-Hardened Guide for Anyone Starting Anything."

A simple yet profound guide for how anyone can achieve anything. The more we grow, the more we can help people, do what is right, and pay back society.

Everyone in the world should read Guy's strategies and techniques on presentations, pitching, business plans, marketing, and communicating.

I use his 10-20-30 presentation rule and his 10 step business plan guide for all my prototypes in business school and all my current companies.

Visit his blog on How to Change the World, and read the "10 Things to Learn This School Year," "VC Aptitude Test," and "Reality Check Checklist."

It's free on his blog. Buy this book and his new one as well.
Powerful Motivator  Nov 19, 2008
The Art of the Start is a great motivator for those who are interested in starting just about anything. Yes, Guy dives into a lot of topics pertaining to venture capitalism, but if you are starting a small business, this book will still give you to motivation to go out and get things done. This book is like a match lit up under your seat. Read it. You'll enjoy it and be driven by it.
A Necessity  Nov 18, 2008
From page one through out the entire book, you can't put it down. Almost every page of my book is highlighted and notes taken. Packed FULL of necessary information to start up your own business. Very well written and easy to comprehend. A definate must for anyone considering and planning a healthy start up business.
More than art, it's pure gold in the palm of your hand!  Oct 21, 2008
My first start-up has taken me over a year to get off the ground. It's a huge and ambitious project and has put my entrepreneurial skills to a test. I truly believe in learning from others so I'm a member of virtually every entrepreneurial blog, magazine and forum. I have also purchased about 8 different books on the subject, all varying in context slightly. The problem with this is that the time spent on blogs, magazines, forums and books is time you can very well spend actually building your company.

If the Art of the Start would have been the first book I bought, I would have saved a lot of time. All the answers I had looked for previously were in there, and they were all explained in that typical Kawasaki way; to the point and no B.S.

This book is by far one of the best pieces of literature on the entrepreneurial start-up process I have yet to get my hands on. If you are planning to start a company, NGO or just a project within your already existing organization, I recommend you read this book FIRST. There will surely be other books that will guide you or help you with the specific details of the area you are working on but try to start out by getting the basic "how to..." of a start-up out of this book.
Bravo!  Oct 18, 2008
The Art of the Start is an excellent book. I work for a start-up and I wish I had this book years ago.
