Reality Check The Irreverent Guide to Outsmarting

$10.00 $32.99
Author: Guy Kawasaki

Format: Paperback / softback

Number of Pages: 496

'I wanted to provide hard-core information to hard-core people who want to kick ass, and I wanted it in something you can hold in your hands-a book. Why? Because a book boots up faster than a blog and is not dependent on Internet connectivity, battery life, or the ineptness of HTML printing.' For a quarter of a century, in his various guises as an entrepreneur, evangelist, venture capitalist, blogger and bestselling author, Guy Kawasaki has cast a sharp eye on the dubious trends, sketchy theories, and crackpot jargon that so often passes for business today. Reality Check is his all-in-one guide to starting and operating great organizations-ones that stand the test of time and ignore passing fads. This indispensable volume collects, updates, and expands the best entries from his popular blog and features his inimitable take on everything from effective e-mailing to preventing 'bozo explosions' to the top ten lies of venture capitalists. 'An irreverent Silicon Valley Emily Post; his highly readable book is an encyclopaedia of proper behavior for entrepreneurs.' - Time 'If you're an entrepreneur, don't even think about trying to launch a start-up without reading Guy Kawasaki Reality Check . . . There's plenty of plain-spoken, tough-love, hard-to-hear advice bundled into these short chapters.' - BizEd Magazine 'Buy two copies of this book. One to rip pages out of, mark up, copy, and track on the wall. And one to give away to your clueless colleague. Oh, better make that three copies. Four?' - Seth Godin, bestselling author of Linchpin and The Dip

    Shipping Times

    For $10 Shipping Australia-wide: We endeavour to process your item(s) within 24/48 business hours. We use a combination of Australia Post (for smaller orders) and a shipping company to deliver your order.  You can expect your items within 4-5 days outside peak (Christmas) season. 

    For in-store pickup: Our warehouse is Melbourne-based. We deliver customer orders to our stores on a regular but somewhat unpredictable schedule. If you are based in Melbourne your order is likely to arrive at your selected store earlier than if you select an interstate in-store pickup option.

    Interstate stores could take up to 3 weeks to receive the book you have ordered. 

    Your chosen store will get in touch with you by email to let you know your book has arrived. 

    Change of Mind - Remainder Marks

    Generally we do not accept returns due to a change of mind. 

    Our books are remainders which means that they occasionally have a texta mark at the base of the book.  This is one reason our prices are so low.  Unfortunately we cannot accept returns for books that are marked in this way. 

    Change of Mind - Mystery Boxes

    We do not generally provide a change-of-mind refund simply because a Mystery Box contains books you are not interested in.  Any refunds we may give will be on a discretionary basis and will depend on the box being shipped back to us. You would be required to pay return shipping for your box.

    Mystery Box - Important to Read:  We do our best to ensure that our Mystery Boxes contain books selected from a wide range of categories.  (Aside from specific Mystery Boxes such as YA Mystery, of course).  As such, you're almost certainly not going to love all the books.  However, they are about $3 each, so can be re-gifted, used for craft, used to bulk out your collection, saved for a hobby you don't yet have... it's up to you!

    We will, however, provide you with a refund for any duplicates of the same title in a Mystery (or any) Box.  Please send a photograph with your email.  The refund is calculated as a proportion of the number of books in the box. 

    If you are concerned you might not like the books in a Mystery Box, we strongly encourage you to try one of our category boxes instead - which have the full book list published in the description.  

    Damaged or incorrect orders 

    If you have received items that are damaged or incorrect please contact us at If your return is accepted, we’ll send you a return shipping label, as well as instructions on how and where to send your package. Items sent back to us without first requesting a return will not be accepted. 

    Please inspect your order upon reception and contact us immediately if the item is defective, damaged or if you receive the wrong item, so that we can evaluate the issue and make it right.

    Exceptions / non-returnable items

    Unfortunately, we cannot accept returns on sale items or gift cards. 


    We will notify you once we’ve received and inspected your return, and let you know if the refund was approved or not. If approved, you’ll be automatically refunded on your original payment method. Please remember it can take some time for your bank or credit card company to process and post the refund too.
