This is brilliant. This book is motivational, inspirational and is full of useful and actionable advice. It is a must-read for Software Engineers, Indiehackers, Entrepreneurs and anyone who wants to build something. I will reread this book one more time soon. Certainly, I see myself rereading it many times in the future.
