  17. 17. “Guy has done it again–evangelized something useful and meaningful. This time, it’s a bottom-up business approach profound in its simplicity: Focus on what’s real and forget the fluff. And, please, read the last chapter first.” — Pierre Omidyar, founder of eBay and co-founder of Omidyar Network “A successful entrepreneur requires three things: a garage, an idea, and this book–Guy’s irrepressible guide to the raw essentials of life in a young company. I wish we could post all this information on Sequoia Capital’s web site because it would make our jobs much easier.” — Michael Moritz, partner, Sequoia Click on to buy Capital “When God made the universe, He took Guy’s advice and started small and put his whole heart into it. Okay, not everything turned out perfect, but as The Art of the Start m akes clear, there are no guarantees, only great opportunities. Read this book and then go do something wonderful.” — Geoffrey Moore, author of Crossing the Chasm
