Great book, got a lot of summaries so good if you haven't read the book. Also talks about Hurstens life and stylistic devices. Must read if you're an IB student studying the text.

Has some interesting concepts, however most of the ideas taught are common sense. Great book for socially challenged people, however for average to above average this book becomes little of value.

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.
