Guy Kawasaki evangelized me into the most productive parts of what I’m trying to pass off as adulthood.
I fell under Guy’s spell and bought our first Mac circa 1988. $6,000 for a Mac Plus with 256K of memory and a whopping 10MB hard drive. It was the single most productive purchase I’ve ever made. Family unit and I are now on our zillionth Mac and have never looked back.
I thank Mr. Kawasaki for his guidance then and now.
Guy Kawasaki’s blog is bright, fast, informative and always valuable. I highly recommend it. There is a permanent link on the right to get there (and I give those links up VERY grudgingly – two in two years)
You will love Guy’s current book ‘The Art Of The Start’, as well as his previous books. I especially liked ‘Rules For The Revolutionaries’.
In ‘The Art Of The Start’ Guy closes the last chapter with a great quote and then some wonderful (as always) writing.
“The true measure of a man is how he treats someone who can do him absolutely no good”. – Samuel Johnson
(Chapter 11) “The Art Of Being a Mensch. The three foundations of menschhood are helping lots of people, doing what’s right, and paying back society – simple concepts that are hard to implement.”
Guy Kawasaki is an excellent writer. More importantly, he delivers a lot of valuable information in a great, no BS style.
My kind of resource.
Thank you, Mr. Kawasaki.
