I’ve been talking about this book since I started reading it. Holy cow is this one amazing. I got it as part of my birthday present and it is amazing. Frankly, I think this should be must-reading for every VFA fellow and anyone interested in startups and entrepreneurship. I would put this one right up there with Zero to One by Peter Thiel which I reviewed here.

As someone who works at a startup, I found it to be really enlightening. Obviously I’m not in the position to hire or fire an executive (the main focus of a chapter of the book), but it was extremely insightful for what that might look or feel like. There’s a section on job titles, which is something I’ve really been struggling with lately, and reading it helped me understand my own feelings! If you’re into startups/business/tech/entrepreneurship/VC-funding, pick this one up because you’ll breeze right through it. It’s even hard to put it down.
