Hello,

A long time ago, I was featured on JavaRanch with my books "iText in Action" (2006) and "iText in Action — Second Edition" (2010). Now, more than ten years later, I have written a new book that will be released in April 2021:  Entreprenerd: Building a Multi-Million-Dollar Business with Open Source Software. With this post, I am reaching out to the people at Big Moose Saloon with a simple question: are you interested in receiving a copy as soon as typesetting is done (and before proofreading starts) so that you can review it before the book is officially released.



Let me know what's the best way to make this happen.
Feel free to remove this post if it's inappropriate to present your own book as an author.
best regards,
Bruno Lowagie

Having read your earlier books (and having been an iText user for years), I'd be happy to review this one as well.

I didn't get any replies on this post, so I went ahead and searched for other reviewers.
The book was released in May and already received several reviews: https://entreprenerd.lowagie.com/reviews.html

Ah, I hadn't noticed that the original post was from 4 months ago. Nothing to see here then :-) Good luck with the sales!

Somehow it didn't show up on the radar. This is the first I've heard of it.

My version:

1. Start with a circle of friends, acquaintances and/or relatives who have free capital available. Uh-oh.

2. Have a social network large enough to recruit the necessary supporting skill. UH-oh.

3. Be sufficiently persuasive to get them to employ those skills for you. UH-OH!

This is the big problem with being a nerd. I had an idea, it was relatively inexpensive to buy the necessary capital goods. I even managed to find a distributor. But lacking both a large enough social network, socialability and any charisma whatsoever - or enough money to bribe people in its absence - the venture eventually faded out and disincorportated.
