They judged their investors based on the football club they supported. Despite supporting the wrong club, that's pretty great to read about.
When starting a business you need to give yourself permission to be unique and to sometimes be irrational. This book helps you come to terms with the ridiculous endeavor of starting a business that is most likely going to fail. They have some good principles that are delivered well and have the anecdotes to back them up.
I have never smiled so much through a book in the business category as I did here. It isn't because it's funny (it is, sometimes) but because it made me feel good. A few months ago I read Richard Branson's autobiography, and can safely say that they may shoot for being the Richard Branson in beauty products. Their book outdoes his in terms of motivating and inspiring the reader to commit to doing their own thing, to walk their own path, to do their own good.
I think that I would have liked to have seen a bit more of the thinking behind the whole business development and what went on in the minds of the authors. They tell their story with plenty of emotion and maybe that is what the business success has been. Maybe, I would have been more satisfied with a third party telling the story and making the observations rather than the founders? I can't quite put my finger on exactly what is missing for me with this book.
I think it is still an interesting read and well worthwhile to understand the process that the writers have gone through in developing their business and making it a success. There is certainly something that you can learn from that.
In summary, to me this book is more a story than something on business development. That doesn't make it any less worthwhile but it was not quite to the level I was personally expecting.
It was easy to read the entire book in a matter of a couple days. Each chapter was filled with anecdotes that showed who Ido and Lance are as people and successful business leaders of sustainability. Must read!!!
I connected with the author's genuine care for their customers and candor regarding their mistakes. I close this book inspired to build my dream well, craft my brand boldly and effectively get big fast.

close and personal distance. The story is great and interesting - to explain how these guys managed to create their own company and how this story is part of the story of their life. Also how to encourage people who want to do the same, there is a plenty of good advices, funny stories, self observation and positive attitude. It is also a big ad for their company - never heard about them before.
It's not really about how to make money very fast, it's more about how to come up with a great product and change people's life in a good way. Loved it!
