Hello Product Hunt! I wrote Acceleration with the vision of giving first-time and second-time entrepreneurs a true ‘heads up’ of the legal issues they will encounter when launching a startup. Entrepreneurs should not have to learn these lessons the hard way. Acceleration is compilation of the most common questions I have received from clients, anecdotes, strategies, and pattern-recognition insights from the past 13+ years being a venture lawyer. Thus, there is content in the book for veteran entrepreneurs as well. The full table of contents is in the gallery. ***For the rest of this week, the ebook version will be $0.99! Happy to answer any questions you may have!
@startuplawyer Hi Ryan, Congrats on the launch, Where I can find the ebook version as I have headed to Amazon, but it only display the option of hardcover
@engmsaleh hmmm, sorry about that. This should be a direct link to the ebook version: "https://www.amazon.com/Accelerat..." Thanks! Let me know if that doesn't work.
@startuplawyer It says that "This title is not currently available for purchase"
I have worked with Ryan for years and he’s the first person I go to for startup or acquisition advice.

This book is a guide to all the major legal issues that face a startup founder. Helps both investors and startup founders figure out what is important to them and how to get it.

Pros:

This is the essential field manual to legal issues facing startup founders

Cons:

Ryan needs to write a book with case studies with real life examples and names disguised. Maybe book 2?

Audio book coming for the a.d.d.-ers soon?
@raydawg88 Hi Ray! Yes I'm working on the logistics for the audio book version and should know more by end of week. FWIW, I did my best to break up the chapters in to separate shortened sections, but totally get the appeal of audiobooks. Even if just for 'time savings/productivity' they are great.
