Bold & inspiring…
In case the title wasn’t enough of a giveaway, Horowitz tackles the tough issues. His leadership advice is bold and inspiring, but laced with humor and empathy — just like the best bosses.

Description

Ben Horowitz, co-founder of Andreessen Horowitz, is one of Silicon Valley’s most renowned and experienced entrepreneurs. In The Hard Thing About Hard Things, he offers crucial advice on building and running a startup. While a lot of books on this topic will often discuss how wonderful it is to start your own business, Horowitz instead takes the brutally honest approach and presents the hard-hitting facts on the difficulties of starting, running, and succeeding in business. Horowitz draws on his own personal experiences, particularly the stories of his founding, running, selling, buying, managing, and investing in various technology companies — including both stories of success and failure.

In his blog, Horowitz is known for covering the toughest problems that business school tends to forget about, and in this book he gives all the key advice to the most asked questions, including: How do you fire friends? Can you poach employees from the competition? How do you cultivate and sustain a CEO mentality?
