What I Liked

Well-written with a few good ideas – better than most business books. I really like the argument that, as a founder, you can make your company into your own little ideal world. You can still do right even if your competitors are not doing right.

What I Did Not Like

It’s a bit hard to untangle Hsieh’s success from his timing.
