Just an exceptionally long advert

Not really worth listening to. Its basically an advert for "start up weekend" from start to finish. There is some gold in there, but you have to dig and dig to find it. Please note, If you read the title and thought it meant how to start a company in a weekend - it isn't at all.

Not worth the month's credit

Very disappointed with this after listening to "The Launchpad - Inside Y combinator" which was an excellent audiobook packed full of value.



This was nothing but a paid advert for Startup Weekend, which does sound great, but not when I'm the one paying to listen!



Find another book - it's not worth the credit.
