    As a developer, I'm not necessarily looking to start a business that makes millions of dollars. I'm just looking to start/run a business that lets me work my own hours and live a comfortable life. This book provides some solid advice on starting and running a business by yourself or with a single partner. I think it takes what is practical from "The 4 Hour Work Week" and applies it to starting a small service or product oriented business. I saw a lot of value from the book on things such as mail [...]

    The title is highly inaccurate, it should rather be along these lines to reflect the book's content: A Micropreneur's Guide to Launching a Microbusiness. The author is also selling his Micropreneur Academy side business which is a - paid online learningenvironment and community website for startup founders. Probably, or probably not, there is better content at the 'Academy' than in this book.

    Very pragmatic and straight-to-the-point guide to starting a small software business. The author understands software developers and identifies common pitfalls to avoid. The book is not a comprehensive reference on small businesses, it's very focused on the issues that a single-developer non-VC startup will face.

    Reviewed as part of my 100 books challenge: jimmylongley/blog/books/Run-on Sentence SummaryA short, no-nonsense guide to starting a small niche business online that clearly comes from experience.ImpressionsA really great set of practical advice that I think will really help me when I decide to explore this area. Its main ideas are about finding and evaluating a market, creating a sales funnel, and outsourcing easy tasks to cheap virtual assistants.Final ThoughtsIt’s a bit prosaic, but over all [...]

    Clearly distilled from years of experience, the content is excellent. The prose isn't the most beautiful or polished, but that's not why someone would pick this up anyways. If you're interested building software that actually makes money, this book is a great starting point.

    Da leggere centellinandolo.

    Lori Grant
    A should-read book on startups for knowledge workers and aspiring entrepreneurs.

    Vic Dinovici
    good for anybody in the computers industry if you plan to make some money after hours or even to move completely on your own.

    Ricky
    Good, but advice is a little dated these days.I wish there was more context/advice into the business and mindset of micropreneurship.

    Vasco
    Interesting book. I have mixed feelings as it's a mix of full-on tech startup and "freedom business", taking elements of both. It presents the dynamics of starting a business, evaluating niches and need, and more, and does it well. I don't agree the branding, especially as a "startup book", but good enough book.

    ferhat
    Actionable in hard soft skills i.e idea, pricing, etc.

    Todd
    An excellent alternative to many of the startup methodologies out there (Blank, Ries, etc).Dated, but still good, and valid!

    Ben
    Concise and stays true to its aim to be relevant to its intended specific audience of software developers. The advice is sound (or seems to be, I should say since I have no experience starting businesses); however, does not seem to be anything really unique that isn't probably covered elsewhere in more generic works about starting a business or working for yourself. The book does start to seem a bit heavy-handed rather than insightful at times such as when it presents Virtual Assistants as a maj [...]

    A must read for those developers who wanted to start their own thing without venture funding. Several practical advices and key points before launching your own product. Plus, as a reader of the book you are entitled to the first month of content for free at the Micropreneur Academy.

    Tomas Varaneckas
    This is a monkey business guide to developing crap products with no or little competition and lots of cheap marketing. The begining was promising, but the rest of this book was a disappointing blabber. We have enough small crappy products around already. Read The Lean Startup instead.

    Nigel Moore
    Highly tactical, definitely recommendedVery tactical, excellent read for any first time entrepreneurs. Goes through most different aspects of starting your first business. Written in an easy to read prose as well.

    Matt Chen
    It's a informative bookAlthough I lived in China, some info from this book doesn't apply here, I still learned a lot from it. There's some interesting ideas, clever thoughts I like.

    Phil Chen
    Had some interesting points, regarding running a business without VC money. Fairly down to earth view point.

    Bill Seitz
    Excellent inspiration toward becoming a 1-man LifeStyleCompany. (Though the target incomes talked about seem awfully low - you may need to move offshore yourself)

    Michael Bond
    Very practical and doesn't blast you with hype. Borrows some ideas from The Four-Hour Work Week, such as hiring offshore workers to do time-intensive jobs that are not worth the orchestrator's time.

    Slava
    A great source of actionable information for independent developers who prefer to work alone or in a small team.

    Nasos Psarrakos
    Awesome book for devs and common probs they face.

    Jascha
    Loved especially the first part of the book

    Patrick
    Good information on launching a web site or software product online. Heavier focus on the sales/marketing aspects than the actual development.

    Brad West
    I would likely have given this a higher rating had I read it a few years ago. I think this would be a great starter book for someone looking to get into the software entrepreneurship game.

    Melih
    Good if you've never read his blog or listened to his podcast. Otherwise, a bit too elementary.

    Karl Svartholm
    Good, really nice to get a perspective other than the Lean Startup. Feels real, few business books do.

    Larry Liu
    Really solid book for internet startups. Focuses on the practical and includes only a sprinkling of theory and personal philosophy.

    Yuri Karabatov
    On point, cross-checks on many points with other reliable sources. A bit dated, especially in the mobile app department :)

    Ben Ng
    I didn't find this book to be very useful. You're better off sticking to staples like The Lean Startup and The Startup Owner's Manual.
