Short, punchy chapters are peppered with wisdom gleaned from the author's experiences as well as practical advice from an assemblage of industry leaders from Apple, HP & the NFL Whether you are an entrepreneur in search of your next entrepreneurial reading or simply interested in taking the leap into your own unknown, The Launch Book can help serve as your field guide for success.
