5.0 out of 5 stars THE book on Crowdfunding, the future of startups, and the Tech Economy in general 26 Nov. 2013
By tjn7 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is bursting with ideas, tied together brilliantly. The authors are not content to lay out the past, present and future of crowdfunding, including the architecture of platforms to support it, They also busily being iconoclasts, breaking down rigid "incumbent" attitudes, technologies and practices, and identifying the flaws and frauds that the old world of technology and finance contain and encourage. This is also a book of "futurism", predicting near- and even long-term innovations and change. I highly recommend this to technologists of all sorts... this is how your next successful venture will be run and funded, and the brave new world may be better than the "Dilbert" world we are leaving behind. Forget "execute, execute, execute"... now it is "pivot, pivot, pivot". Thank you, Kevin and Dan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eye opening introduction to crowd funding 13 Aug. 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This nicely researched book provides a good analysis into the next generation of funding and startups that uses the connections through social media to raise funds and reach customers. It covers the limits of current VC system - especially the inefficiency of VC's meeting and reviewing all the entrepreneurs. Through crowdfunding, the entrepreneurs build an interested community and customer base and develop symbiotically with their businesses. The newer economic model supports a full scale of potential new businesses from very small to larger than any existing today.
I especially liked Ch. 7 "The Artful Ask" and Chs. 13-14 about regulation. These chapters thoughtfully address a lot of the nagging doubts that build as you read through the book about personal transfer of money between un-official, un-incorporated groups. Yeah, corporations have their downsides, but they are tangible and can be held accountable in today's legal system - how do I know these homegrown entities will be enduring and/or accountable? These chapters address the built-in accountability that is developed while the community of funders/customers is developed. They also tell you how to get started if you genuinely want to build your own business.

A good read or instruction manual.

5.0 out of 5 stars break through material 17 Dec. 2013
By yossi ghinsberg - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
these guys are on to something, the book is full of eye opening, paradigm shifting substance. the transition of financing and investment from the controlled, self-absorbed big business monopoly to the crowedfunding model is nothing less than revolutionary, Dan and Kevin show us the horizons of a new world and a new dawn. Moreover it is a good read too with lots of background information to give real base for understanding the environments and the evolution of processes. An idea that it's time has come no army can stop - well crowedfunding is that timely idea and this book is an instant classic for any person that is involved in impacting the world.
i love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best book on market about Crowd-Funding...they know what they are talking about 22 Aug. 2013
By EYellen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Starting a crowd-funding strategy for the non-profit I work for I looked at all of the books out there and this book was the top of the market. Kevin and Dan do a detailed job of explaining the history of crowd-funding, why it will take over many industries as the new and only way to bring communities together around certain causes and go through strategy and future. It's so well written, very detailed and incredibly socially innovative. They are fair in their assessments of platforms, strategies and campaigns. Can't wait to see what else they come out with!

2.0 out of 5 stars okay 15 Jan. 2014
By studioprod. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Again, another term paper padded out to be a book. The usable information could have filled no more than five double=spaced pages.
