XNV - The Exponential Ventures

Lucky or Smart? Fifty Pages For The First-Time Entrepreneur

Adriano Marques

Quick read, features some relevant lessons for aspiring entrepreneurs. I somewhat enjoyed the book, but wasn’t much impressed by it. Maybe it would be more useful if I’ve never read any other entrepreneurship or business book before. One other negative detail, in my opinion, is that author tries to teach you lessons using examples from his experience as entrepreneur in the early 90’s when internet wasn’t anywhere near what it currently is today and uses very little references or research to support its statements. That made me feel little confidence on some of the suggestions the author makes on his book.

If you’re ok with these details, it is an ok read. Not life changing, but somewhat interesting. Can’t recommend this one, because I really don’t feel strong about doing it.
