Inhaltsangabe

Ben Horowitz, cofounder of Andreessen Horowitz and one of Silicon Valley’s most respected and experienced entrepreneurs, 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. Ben Horowitz analyzes the problems that confront leaders every day, sharing the insights he’s gained developing, managing, selling, buying, investing in, and supervising technology companies. A lifelong rap fanatic, he amplifies business lessons with lyrics from his favorite songs, telling it straight about everything from firing friends to poaching competitors, cultivating and sustaining a CEO mentality to knowing the right time to cash in.

Filled with his trademark humor and straight talk, 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.

Nice Book

It really is a nice book but it tells the same story or principles over and over again. Still worth buying and worth reading or listening to.
Enjoy

Am I the only one struggling?

The combination of personal experiences and theoretic insights makes this book truly outstanding. Some of the discussed topics are not yet relevant to my company or me, but I like the idea of growing into this book.

Great answers to rel life questions

I like this book very much. It discusses and demonstrate the mindset for success. It teaches, to have an idea and to exercise until success it there (or the failure is happened and the lesson is learned from it). This is very valuable in a time, where PC is the most admired public and social behavior (but it would never lead you to a worthy goal). It's never easy to make hard decisions but it is the only way to advance.
Ben Horowitz is a excellent teacher and his story is great learning material.
Every "to be future" leader can benefit a lot from this book.
Thanks Ben

Amazing book

As an entrepreneur myself this book resonated a lot with me. It is focused more on bigger companies but gives great insights for smaller ones as well.
Listening to Ben Horowitz' experiences and struggles changed my perspective of my own situation.
I can only recommend this book to everyone building and/or leading a company.

Must read for any Leader

This book describes in great detail what emotional turmoil one undergoes once he is picking up the role of the Leader of a company. Especially great about his insights are his differentiation between a peace and a war time CEO. It describes perfectly the versatility a modern leader has to bring to the table in order to successfully overcome the different challenges of modern business life.

A must-read for all startup CEOs

If you are the CEO of you own company, you must read this book. Read it when you struggle. Not before the struggle begins.

Too much self gratification - oh I’m such a great leader and clever guy. Not much breakthrough and insightful content. Read more like a biography
