'You Never Have Enough!' Great Advice for Start Ups from Sam Adams Founder Jim Koch

Samuel Adams founder and all-around great guy Jim Koch stopped by the Entrepreneur office to talk about his new book, Quench Your Own Thirst: Business Lessons Learned Over a Beer or Two.

Much like his beverage, Jim's business book is anything but typical, featuring chapter headings like The Difference Between Sex and Masturbation, Take Giant Turds in Stride and, our personal favorite, The "Fuck You" Rule.
