So many books, so little time. We find them so you don’t have to. Here are our top picks for the week:
“This book tells us about entrepreneur Ben Horowitz’s experiences of founding, running, selling, buying, managing, and investing in technology companies. Offers advice and practical tips on difficult issues, such as firing an executive, selling your company, poaching staff, and how to avoid being misinterpreted by employees”
