For a period of time, SaaS world had a grow or die mentality. Doing a SaaS was a get a VC onboard with your idea and make it big at all cost. It was not easy and it is still not easy today.

If you are going to read this book, read it in the morning. It is because the writings inspire so many ideas that if you read it before going to bed, you might stay up late at night to get those ideas out to your head. (unless you are an night owl, it’s fine.)
