"A Silicon Valley veteran and author of the bestseller High Tech Start Up reveals the nature of unfair advantage -- that holy grail for every company, the mysterious quality that separates successful businesses from the nine out of ten that fail -- and then shows how to create an unfair advantage, build it into a business plan, and use it to maximum effect."

"There is no shortage of books covering the basics of the entrepreneurial experience: having an idea, writing a business plan, recruiting a management team, etc., but I cannot find another book that is exclusively about the elusive 'secret sauce' of start-ups -- the so-called unfair advantage -- as it seems to defy a hard-and-fast definition. So many people use the term, but no one seems to be able to define it. This book is the first comprehensive treatment of this subject -- and long overdue."
-- David Rex, Jackson Walker L.L.P.

-- Anthony Gioeli, CEO, Atrua Technologies, Inc.
