The Hard Thing About Hard Thing Building a Business When There Are No Easy Answers - Ben HorowitzLater edit:

Based on your vote, the book to read in March 2020 is… The Hard thing about Hard Things, by Ben Horowitz. See the voting percentage below.

I have to say, I think you should read all the books suggested for March. They’re the perfect set of books to prepare you for the entrepreneurial experience, if you’re just starting or you think about starting a business. If you’re already an experienced entrepreneur, you should read them as well, because you’ll discover new things and you’ll also understand, again, that you’re not the only one feeling the way you feel.

Here’s how the vote was cast:

Below it’s the original article:

March is the month of entrepreneurial experiences at The CEO Library.

I feel that a lot of books for entrepreneurs try to teach people what to do, but not a lot of books tell people how it is.

These are the books that, in my opinion, tell the story of how it really is to have a startup, to start a business:

  1. Startup Life: Surviving and Thriving in a Relationship with an Entrepreneur, by Brad Feld and Amy Batchelor
  2. Chaos Monkeys: Inside the Silicon Valley Money Machine, by Antonio Garcia Martinez
  3. Lost and Founder: A Painfully Honest Field Guide to the Startup World, by Rand Fishkin
  4. The Hard Thing About Hard Things: Building a Business When There Are No Easy Answers, by Ben Horowitz

No matter where you are in your entrepreneurial journey, these books should be mandatory reading. Since we don’t have that much time in a month, though, let’s just choose only one to read.

What book should you read for March 2020, for The CEO Library Book Club?
