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.

Why can't salesmen sell? And why won't prospects listen? We offer great products to prospects. We say great things to people. We share our vision and passion with others. And they don't buy, they don't believe us, and they don't share our vision and passion. We say great things, but people don't believe us, and they don't trust us. So we don't need more good things to say. Instead, we need to learn how to get people to believe and trust the good things we are saying already.

The audio recording has very abrupt cuts and you can hear a click every time the recording was paused. This is very annoying.

In term information, this book doesnt contain much that was useful to me personally.

The autor pin points very few ideas and most of the audio is repetitive examples of these ideas. The cover suggests that there are 13 ideas, but to me it feels like many are the exact same.

The information is very down to earth and doable. I work presenting all the time, have studied a good bit about presentations and still learned quite a bit from this book.

The narration is quite engaging too!

The New York Times best-selling author heralds the future of business in Free. In his revolutionary best seller, The Long Tail, Chris Anderson demonstrated how the online marketplace creates niche markets, allowing products and consumers to connect in a way that has never been possible before. Now, in Free, he makes the compelling case that, in many instances, businesses can profit more from giving things away than they can by charging for them.
