    Avi ZuberFull-stack Engineer @ Maze · Written
    This book talks about the importance of being candid, caring for employees, thinking outside the box and creating a culture that fosters creativity. Many of the points are shared through behind-the-scenes stories from classic Pixar movies, which makes it a very easy and enjoyable read.

    If there is one book I'd refer for culture, it would be Tony Hsieh's book. Tony starts with his story around how he was able to make profits but still not was happy about it. Then he walks through the story of Zappos, why they moved to Vegas and how they built one of the best customer service companies in the world. Highly recommended read!
