I will either write Don't just start Software Company because you want or Start Software Company whenever you want depending upon the outcome.

Well Book is good, but eventually, I would like to tell you, It totally depends upon your expereince. I have read some of sections of this book. Specially Section III is good a bit.

It would be innapropriate for me not to mention one major issue I have with the book. The book makes reference to resources in a cd that wasn't even included. At the end of the book, where most CDs are found, there's a sales pitch to call a 1800number to ORDER a cd!
There isn't even a website with supporting documents for this book, which is a luxury that we're accustomed to with other publishers.

But finally I have concluded that it may be worthy if I have some expereince around 10-12 Years.

Start a software company right away. If you succeed, you have a company. If you failed, write a book.

And one of the comments:
Much of the advice in this book may have been useful 10 years ago, but isn't relevent today. The picture of a pile of 3.5" floppy disks on the back cover is a good indication of the dated material in the book.


Well, lets assume no bubbles busted in past 7 years and world is not happy with CDs, DVDs, BluRays etc. and waiting for floppy disks to come back. Seems like a pretty useful book to me
