    1. John Stepper on said:

      I learned a lot - and got inspired by - each of the 3 books in this series. Even if you don't love every essay of the many in each book, you're sure to find several that can help you.

    2. Arnied on said:

      This is a lot of what you've heard before but still great stuff. And it is a pretty easy read with lots of relevant examples. Some fun facts too like Alexander Bell wanted everyone to say the word Ahoy as a greeting on his invention. His friend, Thomas Edison coined the word -- Hello -- instead. This book is really for people who want to make something but can't quite get there. It's inspirational with some hints at what to do and what not to do. It isn't detailed though. In a nutshell, start so [...]

      Great handbook for creative entrepreneurs looking for insights from a wide range of successful entrepreneurs and writers.

    4. Jason on said:

      Inspiring & practicalConfirms & articulates many thoughts I had about innovative business models from authorities on the matter, even a nuclear submarine captain thrown in the mix. Great for creative types at any stage of developing a business or nonprofit organization. Being part of a management team for a non profit NGO this book has given me inspiration to endure and applicable material that will surely breathe new life to our organization.

    5. alex on said:

      Food for thought. This is a quick guide to creatives looking to get into the adventure of building a business, but this is also great for people who are managers who want to get inspired in a creative way.

    6. Sylvia Swann on said:

      I got more out of this little book than I ever dreamed possible. Bravo 99U and Jocelyn K. Glei! Reading Manage Your Day-to-Day next,and I can’t wait. Really want to attend your next conference in NYC.

    7. Melanie on said:

      I won a copy of this book in a First Reads drawing, and it was the first time I'd ever heard of 99U. Nonetheless I will give a candid review.This is a collection of business insights from a handful of new entrepreneurs. The word "creative" in the title means "people who create/makers/innovators" as opposed to "artist." Essays are pretty heavy into tech and Silicon Valley-type upstarts, though there are a few clothing and textile manufacturers as well. Authors featured include Neil Blumenthal, J [...]

    8. Kelly Lynn Thomas on said:

      I love the 99U series, and I would recommend all three books to anyone in even a slightly creative profession--hell, I'd even say read them if you work in something number-oriented like accounting.Each book is broken down into chapters, and there are a handful of short essays in each chapter. Each essay is short, to the point, and helpful. Usually the essays propose one thing to help you grow professionally or personally (sometimes both).Each chapter ends with a "key takeaways" section that quic [...]

      This series of books by Jocelyn K. Glei and 99U (Behance) are phenomenally good reads for creatives, small business owners, and entrepreneurs. I own all three books and hope they continue to produce such high quality publications; the format and writing style is fluid, inspiring, and enlightening.Make Your Markprovides practical insights into building and maintaining a creative business, defining purpose, building products, serving customers, and leading teams.

    10. Steve Dallape on said:

      This book has some good nuggets of wisdom and pieces of smart advice for the potential entrepreneur. Maybe it's just the grumpy old man in me coming out (I'm probably about twice the age of this books intended audience), but a lot of it seemed to be surrounded by this kind of new-agey, mystical verbage that kind of diminished the imoact for me. I had to work a little harder than I expected to extract the good stuff, but there IS good stuff.

    11. Alaeddin Hallak on said:

      The key message in this book:There is nothing to stop any creative in the modern world from turning their skills and passions into a successful business. As long as you concentrate on the four key principles of purpose, product, customers and leadership, you can transform your idea into a business opportunity.

    12. Kate Vann on said:

      A creatively inspiring book full of useful information to apply in business and in our lives, focusing on the impact we can make. Contributions by the very people who have achieved success and are now willing to impart their advice to the reader. It is a book that I know I will refer to again and again.

    13. Gwen on said:

      Contains some good advice, but it was mostly a "pick and choose" advice for my business. If you are developing or have developed a product and are marketing and/or selling it the book would be better suited to your needs than it was to mine. I was, however, able to glean considerable advice from the parts where I could.I received this book free from First Reads.

    14. Drew Coffman on said:

      On leading, managing, and building well.I really enjoy this series of books, full of insights that, while simple and practical, are deceptively helpful and necessary for anyone who has the desire to start something. Incredibly worthwhile.

    15. Lilly Becer on said:

      I received a free sampler of this book. After reading that I ordered a full copy because I found it very informative and gave great information on how to save my hard earned money. I will also be buying it for my sisters and hope they will like it as much as I did.

    16. Clayton Heilman on said:

      Good but not greatA quick read with lots of little nuggets of wisdom to take away but several of the sections lacked depth and substance. For the price and the length it was worth reading though.

    17. Tracy on said:

      I really enjoyed this book even though I have no plans to start or build a business. I learned quite a bit regardless and found this book to be very interesting. Think it's one I'll keep in my library for future reference.

    18. Alex Devero on said:

      What drives skills and passions into a successful business? All you need is to understand and use the four key principles of purpose, product, customers and leadership. Great book that showed me various ways to do it.

    19. Michelle Sabourin on said:

      As far as business books go, I really enjoyed this read. It was filled with strong examples that made sense to use in real life business.

    20. Chadi Nanaa on said:

      It's not about making a profit-driven business , it's about making an impact ! This good is your guide to make a world a good place while making profit.

    21. Ben on said:

      this was the best of the series had some great contributions about leadership and openness's a good read and free if you are an prime member

    22. Melissa Hazelwood on said:

      What can I say, the team at 99U are always on the ball! A good read.

    23. Moses on said:

      Good inspirational bits to get you going. Good for the creative souls out there.

    24. Tomas Ramanauskas on said:

      There's hardly anything new could be said about start-ups and kicking off your own business. But this book serves quite decently as a check list of question and topics to address when starting.

    25. Marjorie Turner on said:

      Each chapter is stand alone; some great, some good, some okay. All together they create inspiration for all areas of creative work and leadership.

    26. Carl Lens on said:

      Full of insights. Although it is a good collection of wisdom, smartly categorized, it still feels a little fragmented.
