Gunhee Park (Co-Founder/Populum)The books that have had the most influence for me are business biographies/autobiographies. My favorites have been Losing My Virginity by Richard Branson, How to Get Rich by Felix Dennis (the book isn’t as shallow as the title makes it seems), and Made in America by Sam Walton. Reading the stories of these business pioneers has had a big motivation on me to step out of my comfort zone and strive to make an impact.
Michael Herrmann (Founder/Terminerinnerung)More the story of how the author got rich. But interesting to read about his experiences.
Laurentiu-Victor Balasa (CEO / Underline)Funny, witty writing style - contrary to the clickbaity title, the book has real value for founders. It's an autobiography from a very smart founder.
Felix Dennis is an expert at proving people wrong. Starting as a college dropout with no family money, he created a publishing empire, founded Maxim magazine, made himself one of the richest people in the UK, and had a blast in the process. How to Get Rich is different from any other book on the subject because Dennis isn't selling snake oil, investment tips, or motivational claptrap. He merely wants to help people embrace entrepreneurship, and to share lessons he learned the hard way. He reveals, for example, why a regular paycheck is like crack cocaine; why great ideas are vastly overrated; and why ownership isn't the important thing, it's the only thing.
