Beyond Product

Praise for Beyond Product

"An immersion course in marketing for founders of product-based businesses… The short book was designed so that busy entrepreneurs could read it in a single sitting, and the authors’ breezy writing style makes it zip by. However, each chapter stands alone, so that readers may revisit it at each phase of a company’s growth… A forward-thinking guide to startups. - Kirkus Reviews
