    2. I loved this book As an entrepreneur, Casnocha gives great advice and it details how and what he did to start his first company when he was 15 The story this book tells illustrates that even though there are risks and ups and downs associated with starting a business, it is possible to control certain factors and improve at certain skills to help you succeed This is one of my favorite business books.


    3. This is a business book that reads quickly as an excellent memoir in the life story of a software startup The authors ability to tell his story while simultaneously throwing in bits of business wisdom some of which the seasoned business reader will most likely know or have experience with is refreshing After reading it, and returning it to the library, I decided to acquire my own copy as a reference book for myself and coworkers who might benefit from it.


    4. What I liked most about Casnocha s book was that he took us through the start up experience step by step Knowing that he would make some mistakes on the way as we all do he addressed them anyway, making sure to show what he learned from each.This is one of my favorite entrepreneurship books.


    5. I liked Ben s account of starting Comcate Considering he was 15 when he started the company it s a pretty remarkable a story I do think it might be a bit basic for experienced entrepreneurs but for those who like any entrepreneurial memoir and especially people just getting started in business this will be a great and worthwhile read.


    6. I absolutely loved this book A story about ambition and perseverance, coming directly from a young man who at 12 years opened his first company and at 16 years he was nominated for entrepreneur of the year At 19 years old he published this book that recounts the events that went up to that point.


    7. Blogger Ben Casnocha gives a sweeping account of his entrepeneurial life He includes numerous anecdotes about his business experiences, plus takes time out to explain business lessons of his and of his business friends Wonderful advice for the inspired entrepeneurs of the future.



    8. This book is so inspirational Our businesses are completely different, but we go through the same stages The excitement and drive of this teenager helped renew my passion in my business.


    9. There s something I ve noticed about the CEO memoirs They talk about the things they did right They talk about the focus and the strategy They do not talk about the stuff that they got wrong in any detail at all.Notably, I was looking to see what Casnocha was doing to manage his technical team and the website for a few chapters and not seeing anything The next mention I see is his VP of Engineering resigning out of sheer frustration It s only after his VP resigns that he goes back and mentions w [...]


    10. Actually, this is a very decent book, and certainly a worthwhile read for anyone interested in enterpreneurship My two star rating has little to do with the quality of the book it s just a personal opinion because my own interests don t really coincide with the subject I read it because it s on the college bound recommended reading list Despite that, I picked up a few interesting tidbits networking is so incredibly deliberate It actually makes me a bit uncomfortable, which is just one of the rea [...]


    11. While most of us were experiencing the trials and tribulations that come with high school life, Ben Casnocha was already the chairman of his second company, Comcate In fact, he was nominated for Inc Magazine s Entrepreneur of the Year at the ripe age of 16 While that is indeed an impressive feat, I thought his book was a bit of a let down The book contains a jumbled array of insights from Ben s Braintrust , who are essentially his mentors There are also several sections called Brainstorm that of [...]


    12. There were parts of this book I liked a lot and parts that fell short Even though Casnocha s story centers around the dot com boom bust, there are many great strategies and principles that apply to any career.


    13. As Ben quotes at the end of his book Mavis Leyer once said, The object of life s journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting, Holy shit, what a ride
