I've been a long time Hacker News (YC) reader, and when I saw this book for sale I immediately purchased it, although, to be honest, I didn't have high hopes for the content. I figured that since I'm already extremely familiar with the YC stories, this book would be more of the same.

This is an excellent book about what seems to me an amazing organization. Paul Graham must be a rare human being and what he and his colleagues have created speaks brightly from within the lines of this book. The Renaissance has moved to California!
This book is an excellent account of the journey that a batch of y-combinator startups take as they progress through the program. No part of this book was boring.

The author recounts conversations, has organized the book very well, and draws interesting conclusions. Highly recommend.
