build the fort coverThis is a short and sweet book that compares the act of starting a company, a startup, with that of building a fort. It’s a very enjoyable read with the childhood stories of building a fort and it reminded me of those days in which it seemed easier to find a co-founder.

I’m not sure the book had anything new to me having already read so many other books about starting companies but it was still an enjoyable read and it’s good to get concepts refreshed. This book puts a lot of emphasis in socializing the idea and indeed that gave me a lot of food for though regarding how I’m going about my own startup.

I think it makes a very good first book about startups or a refresher for someone that’s been doing it for a while and needs a refresher.
