Hiya, Product Hunt - We're super excited to bring The High Growth Handbook to life and launch. We've got the Stripe Press team here ready to answer any questions you might have about Elad's book or Stripe Press, more broadly. Looking forward to hearing from you!
This looks so good - kudos to Elad and all the Stripe Team. Can't wait to read ๐Ÿ˜
What were the main challenges in publishing this first book?
@_jacksmith The nuances of supply chain, distribution, and logistics were (mostly) brand new to us! I have a whole new respect for companies that sell and distribute physical good and for platforms like Shopify that help enable that!

How is this book different than other books on company growth, leadership, tactics?
@bryantchou @justinkan has a good summary on Twitter: https://twitter.com/justinkan/st... The main differences are: 1. It is tactical specific advice versus theoretical. 2. There is a lot covered. Rather than take 1 concept and write 200 pages, it is broken down into different parts of scaling a business. 3. Interviews. There are 14 interviews broken up into the chapters to give the practitioners perspective on the topic. 4. Reading style. It is not meant to be read end to end. Rather, it is worth skipping over to parts of interest. So it is meant to be more of a reference guide then anything else. Thanks a ton!
