Ben Horowitz's Book

Building a Business When There Are No Easy Answers

#5 Product of the DayJanuary 20, 2014
As many of you know, Ben Horowitz, co-founder of A16Z, writes one of the best blogs for entrepreneurs: His book just opened for pre-orders, releasing March 4th. Here's the summary on Amazon: "Ben Horowitz, cofounder of Andreessen Horowitz and one of Silicon Valley's most respected and experienced entrepreneurs, offers essential advice on building and running a startup—practical wisdom for managing the toughest problems business school doesn’t cover, based on his popular ben’s blog. While many people talk about how great it is to start a business, very few are honest about how difficult it is to run one. Ben Horowitz analyzes the problems that confront leaders every day, sharing the insights he’s gained developing, managing, selling, buying, investing in, and supervising technology companies. A lifelong rap fanatic, he amplifies business lessons with lyrics from his favorite songs, telling it straight about everything from firing friends to poaching competitors, cultivating and sustaining a CEO mentality to knowing the right time to cash in. Filled with his trademark humor and straight talk, The Hard Thing About Hard Things is invaluable for veteran entrepreneurs as well as those aspiring to their own new ventures, drawing from Horowitz's personal and often humbling experiences."
pre ordered!
I'm pumped Ben is sharing his experiences with the world. Reality checks in the startup scene are never fun, but definitely needed. Hopefully this book relates the lessons + themes Ben wrote about in the Struggle:
@rrhoover Just a question: what types of books are we allowed to post on Product Hunt? Trying to figure out what the community boundaries are. ;)
@mijustin we define products broadly. If you think the book is relevant to the community and either brand new or largely unknown (please don't post The Tipping Point :P), go for it!
