In his book “The Hard Thing About Hard Things”, Ben Horowitz, one of Silicon Valley’s most respected and experienced entrepreneurs, describes his story of
– founding
– running
– selling
– buying
– and managing tech companies.

He offers wisdom on practical issues that business schools don’t cover.

His advice is mostly dipped in anecdotes from his journey.

A fan of the rap genre, he spices up business lessons with lyrics from his favorite songs and speaks about everything – from firing friends to poaching competitors to cultivating a CEO mentality.

A lot of people speak about how amazing it is to start a business, Ben tells you how hard it is to run one.
