    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.

    Would you listen to The Hard Thing About Hard Things again? Why?

    Yes, I plan to re-listen to it at least once every year or so. I love the honesty in the stories, it is something that anyone who's built and sold businesses before can identify with.

  • Built to Sell: Creating a Business That Can Thrive Without You

    A business parable about how to create a start-up that won't trap you when you want to sell it. According to John Warrillow, the number one mistake entrepreneurs make is to build a business that relies too heavily on them. Thus, when the time comes to sell, buyers aren't confident that the company-even if it's profitable-can stand on its own. To illustrate this, Warrillow introduces us to a fictional small business owner named Alex who is struggling to sell his advertising agency.

    M. Muin says: "Good content, Very bad narration"
    "Great content but HORRIBLE nattation."

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    If you're deaf you might be able to cope.


    What other book might you compare Built to Sell to and why?

    I couldn't tell you, I couldn't absorb the content.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrators voice is incredibly difficult to listen to and completely distracts from the content.

    He uses voices that are excessively overblown and has a weird twang that he uses at the end of almost every sentence.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Built to Sell?

    The end of every sentence.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't often write scathing reviews, but the narration of this book REALLY REALLY destroyed what is otherwise a good book.
