Delighted to be sharing this at last as we've been working on it at Intercom for several months. We've taken some of our best writing on starting up from our blog, added in our latest thinking and sprinkled it with some stories from the early days of the company. It's divided into 9 questions that we believe every startup is going to have to answer as it grows e.g. what to build, who to hire, why culture matters etc. Available in a beautiful hardcover (or an equally beautiful PDF), it features over a dozen original illustrations courtesy of the Intercom Brand Studio. You can grab a digital copy today or pre-order the hardback, which will beging shipping shortly.

@csaba_kissi @jaycee001 21 should be an option too since you're donating to Black Girls Code!

I love the distribution method. Either pay $10 (very reasonable), pay $5 to a great cause, or share with a friend (building distribution into the model - and giving intercom two email addresses for zero marginal cost). (I went for the great cause ::smile::)

I was lucky enough to get my hands on an early copy. The hardback copy is beautiful, and the print quality is amazing, but maybe I've a soft spot for neon inks.The production value is way better than any other $10 'business' book, pick it up you won't be disappointed.

Tried to pre-order the book but I can't put my phone number in the form, it's always marked as invalid while it's a valid number in Poland. Can you advise what's the valid format for phone numbers?

@piotrkulpinski I'm getting the exact same issue for Portugal. Ironically, their customer service isn't replying. :-P Edit: They've replied and are working on it. I would suggest you try giving them a ping as well Piotr!

@gilbelford I've used their chatbox as well but no reply so far. Thanks for the tips!
