What we loved:

This free ebook for early founders packs a lot into the space it has. It's basically a quick-start guide to the product discovery process, which should definitely be (at least partially) done before bringing other founding team members on board. The perfect place to start for those who want to get into the tech/startup landscape, have heard some of the terms and learned about some of the business structure, but aren't actually familiar with how to get started themselves.

What we didn't love:

This ebook is only 10 pages long, but it takes 3 before we get to the good stuff. Generally speaking, we'd love to see everything expanded on a bit — a little more explanatory text, a little more space to jot down notes or thoughts. Its compactness is both a strength and a weakness
