When I was in fourth grade, my math class was assigned a book to read called The Toothpaste Millionaire. It’s an old book, originally published in the ’70s, but I thought about it for the first time in years recently when thinking about transparency, open source, and the disruption of industries. It’s a book about how to start a business, but written at a level even a kid (or perhaps especially a kid) can understand. I haven’t read it again, but I’m thinking about hunting down a copy for a second look.
