A nobrainer to support Pieter and buy this book. Always have appreciated him sharing his journey, what works and what doesn’t. Said it before and will say it here again, you deserve all the success you’re experiencing right now. Bought this ages ago, can’t wait to read.

The entire process of building the crowdsourced book is incredible in itself, and Pieter adds on top the obfuscation thing that's never been seen anywhere 😄 This book goes straight in my top books for indies along with Getting Real, Rework, 4HWW, Start Small, Stay Small, Micro-ISV: From Vision to Reality

This is the second time that the book has been featured on ProductHunt. The first time was back in 2015, when I pre-ordered. Yet to receive anything from Pieter indicating that the book is actually finished.

Many if not most business books are written by authors, rather than actual entrepreneurs. This makes sense considering entrepreneurs are busy running their business :)

Despite Pieter being a true entrepreneur he still found the time somehow to write this book.

I would recommend any (wannabe) maker to just go out and build stuff rather than read books. I bet Pieter would say the same. However, if you feel stuck or need some motivation, then this is the book for you. Buy it. Read it. And get back to shipping.

I bought the book when it was just chapter one in a Google Doc, I love that this book was created using the same methods it teaches.

In my opinion any self-starter or entrepreneur needs only two books, this and Rework.

I don't know of anyone who is as much an authority on bootstrapping and launching product ideas as Levelsio. He's probably also responsible for the plague of 'curated resources' on Product Hunt.
