Startup Life - The Book

The next book, Startup Life, in the Startup Revolution series is coming out in short order (you can pre-order now). My wife and I contributed to this one. Startups are a unique beast when it comes to career paths, and the blend of marriage and children make it particularly interesting.

While we don't provide any silver bullets, our aim was to try and get folks with kids who are considering "doing a startup" to have some sense of how we think about the combination. From the challenges, to the incredible highs, we wanted to paint a picture of what startup life with kids looks like to us.

Overall the book lays out many perspectives about what life at a startup entails. As the economy leverages startups more and more, and as you may subsequently may be considering joining or starting one, the book is a timely guide into what they might mean to you. My generation grew up with college-to-big-company as the life/career path, so I've had to find my own way through startups. Hopefully this book allows you to shortcut some of the mistakes we made.
