Piaw,

Congratulations on completing your book, it is full of good advice and is an easy read as well. Of course, I find the topic fascinating, so that helps.

Are you still interested in things like typos and grammar errors? I found a couple. It is probably worth a careful edit, do you want me to see if I can find someone to look over it for things like that? My downstairs neighbor is a good editor and might be willing to do it.

Thanks,
Jim

Thanks to Kevin Chang, I've upgraded the site to the 2000s. Robert &
Jim, please take a look at it, since you're quoted in it!

Having worked at three different startups and three large corporations
all of different size and dynamics I can really relate to the topic. I
remember working with Piaw at Escalate and I can say without any doubt
that he is one of the smartest people I met. He has a certain win
attitude which is always reflected in everything he does, be it
designing systems, cycling or writing a book. His new book is full of

great ideas and communicates well some of the common dilemmas many
engineers face when they choose to try out a startup. I find all of
the advices he gives to be very practical and downright useful.

Best Regards,
-Robert
