It might be hard to imagine their difficult climbs to success given where these hot companies are today, but some encountered obstacles so great the companies nearly folded.

Through interviews with many of these startups founders, investors, and early employees, Tice and Lester provide new insight on familiar stories such as the founding of Groupon, Zynga, and Pinkberry Frozen Yogurt, creating a collection that offers aspiring entrepreneurs a glimpse of what happens in a startups frantic early years.
