4.0 out of 5 stars Good Read But Heavey, 9 Mar 2012
This is a good book, it covers lots of topic. The only thing I hate about this book is that it is too lengthy.

Still I recommend this book for anyone who is running or planning to start a B2B online venture.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Read, 9 Mar 2012
There are very few books which captures so much. If you want to read the history of Alibaba and Jack Ma - read this book. It is very detailed and interesting.

From the early days, how and why it was named Alibaba and how the domain was acquired by the startup.

I strongly recommend this book, and wished similar were there for Amazon, EBay and Google. If you know any, please tell me in the comment.

1.0 out of 5 stars Save Money, 9 Mar 2012
This is the worst self-help book I have read. Incomplete, copied from others. Most of concepts are directly copied from The Power of Your Subconscious Mind: One of the Most Powerful Self-help Guides Ever Written!.

Stay away and save money.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not worth the money, 6 Aug 2011
This is a "nice" book, but depends who is reading. If you are an entrepreneur with no background in finance, this book may prove a great help to you. But if you are a seasoned entrepreneur or you are a founder with finance background, this book adds little value.

There are more than capitalization table to the mathematics of VC financing and certainly more than Prisoner's dilemma to the negotiation tactics; it also cover very less on the acquisition of startups.
Moreover, most the stuff can be found online free of cost including on Brad Feld and Jason Mendelson blogs/website; and also on askvc website.

If you are working in VC industry, this book is almost worthless to you. But if you are first-time entrepreneur with no finance background, please go and get this book; it compiles most of the stuff in one place.

2.0 out of 5 stars Amazing truths about Amazon Kindle, 19 Sep 2010
Update: I apologize for getting mixed up with allowance the kindle app store gave to each app when it was announced, with the limit of 3G.

Color: White is not available in UK. White is good for eyes as it merges with the background of the text.

E-Ink Screen: As good as paper, can be read in sun light. Great!

New Design: Yes, lighter, smaller and Faster Page Turn

Battery: Doesn't really matter for me

Storage: 3 GB for user content; should have been move.

Free 3G Wireless: Works fine, there are certain limits as pointed in comments.

Wi-Fi / Web browser: Not easy to connect, each time it freezes

PDF Reader: Useless. In fact if your intention is too read PDF books/manuals on this device just forget it. You can't zoom and pan a 10 pages PDF document to read it. It is good for reading single page or two pages PDFs (I will prefer the use of word "viewing" instead of "reading")

Who should buy it: Who mostly read fictions! Text-only books. If you are planning to buy to read engineering books or any other text book, again this device is useless. I decided to purchase a book on Financial Analysis, I was worried how it will be displayed - mostly formulae and financial tables. I got a sample delivered. Most of the tables (balance sheet and other financial statements) were embedded as pictures in the kindle book. No clarity at all, even if you zoom it, you may need some other magnifying device to read these tables and formulae.

Will I return it: No, with in 1 hour of exploring this Kindle I decided to gift it to one of my friends who mostly reads fiction (text-only books)

Will I ever buy another Kindle: No, I will not buy any e-reader again, leave Kindle. They are not for me.

1.0 out of 5 stars Too expensive, 19 Sep 2010
This is definitively a good protection for Kindle 3. But this is too costly and probably not worth the money. I will recommend any other third party case which are certainly less expensive.
