An invaluable book for veteran entrepreneurs as well as those aspiring to their own ventures!

The Hard Thing About Hard Things by Ben Horowitz is a business book that draws from Horowitz's personal and often humbling experiences, trademark humor and straight talk to get right into how difficult it really is to run a business. I'm really interested in reading about the hard lessons learned that apply to any manager, whether in the executive suite or not. A refreshingly honest take from someone like Horowitz, cofounder of Andreessen Horowitz and renowned for his credentials in Silicon Valley, is very welcomed.

The summary of The Hard Things About Hard Things, as posted on Amazon, is:

"Ben Horowitz, cofounder of Andreessen Horowitz and one of Silicon Valley's most respected and experienced entrepreneurs, offers essential advice on building and running a startup—practical wisdom for managing the toughest problems business school doesn’t cover, based on his popular ben’s blog.

While many people talk about how great it is to start a business, very few are honest about how difficult it is to run one. Ben Horowitz analyzes the problems that confront leaders every day, sharing the insights he’s gained developing, managing, selling, buying, investing in, and supervising technology companies. A lifelong rap fanatic, he amplifies business lessons with lyrics from his favorite songs, telling it straight about everything from firing friends to poaching competitors, cultivating and sustaining a CEO mentality to knowing the right time to cash in."

I'm really interested in reading the brutal honestly about how hard it is to run a business. If anyone else is interested in reading the business book The Hard Thing About Hard Things: Building a Business When There Are No Easy Answers by Ben Horowitz, click on the source link up above to get a glimpse on Amazon.

Pros:

- A valuable and honest book on startup management.
- Insight from real experience.

Bottom Line:

Most business books focus on how to do things correctly, whilst Ben acknowledges upfront there is no such thing as a perfect business and however much planning you make, screw ups will inevitably happen. He addresses all the major screw ups that have occurred during his time leading billion $ corporations and how his team made decisions to turn things around, or screw things up further. I'm a big fan of real, honest books. With my interests in businesses, I think this would be an excellent read.
