    Ben Horowitz 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. The Hard Thing About Hard Things is invaluable for veteran entrepreneurs as well as those aspiring to their own new ventures, drawing from Horowitz’s personal and often humbling experiences.

    At last, here's THE audiobook that 21st century entrepreneurs have been waiting for - the inner-secrets of how highly successful Internet capitalists make millions by knowing who to reach and how to reach them online. From viral loops to social networking to how to cut through all the cyber-clutter, Six Pixels of Separation is mandatory listening for anybody who wants to expand their business via the Internet.

    Darren says: "10,000 Foot View - No Real Meat or Potatoes"
    "Don't waste your time"
    Overall

    The book was way too basic and didn't really dive into anything. More of a "what is the internet" type of book.

  • The Thing About Life Is That One Day You'll Be Dead

    Story
    (6)

    Mesmerized, at times unnerved, by his 97-year-old father's nearly superhuman vitality and optimism, David Shields undertakes an investigation of the human physical condition. The result is this exhilarating book - both a personal meditation on mortality and an exploration of flesh-and-blood existence from crib to oblivion. It's an exploration that paradoxically prompts a renewed and profound appreciation of life.

    Mark says: "Too much of the author's uninteresting story"
    "Too much of the author's uninteresting story"
    Overall

    There are bits that have interesting facts about aging but you have to sit through boring stories of the author's life in between the interesting points. I frankly don't care who he dated, stories of him going to ballgames with his dad, etc.
