    Is this relevant to startups in the United States?

  2. Asghar:

    but this startup link is not working can you explain?

  3. Simon:

    @ Kerrick – The advice in the book is relevant to startups worldwide, but the partner offers included in the pack are mainly for the UK market. All the details about the pack are on the BrightWord website here:

  4. Simon:

    @Asghar – Hello. Can you let us know which link isn’t working for you? All the links above seem fine to me, but I may have missed one!

  5. jenni:

    I can’t get the links to work at all – I even tried googling bright word publishing and the links aren’t working there either. Is the site down?

  6. Charlotte:

    Hi @jenni, I am a bit flummoxed because the site is fine and all the links on this page are working for me! I’ve asked around and potentially the issue could be if you are reading it via Facebook? Otherwise, perhaps refresh the page and try again in a little while?
