5.0 out of 5 stars This book is Salvation
Reviewed in India on 24 February 2019
The Hard Thing about Hard Things is pure SALVATION.

Written by the well known Ben Horowitz (VC of FB, Airbnb, Pinterest, Twitter), this is Ben's narration as a HARDCORE entrepreneur.

What I LOVE about the book:

- There is no black or white in the world of startup entrepreneurship. It's always a shade of grey.

- The roller coaster ride of an entrepreneur & how SIMILAR it feels to all our journeys. This book is a GREAT leveller 🙂

- Profanity is a mindset. Ben narrates how he handles it (also mentioning its purpose)

- Co-Founder relationship management!

- The constant dread of shutting down / going bankrupt and how the single pointed agenda of SURVIVING pulled Ben and his Company through until stardom.

- When to use statistics and when to use calculus 🙂

- The incredible story of Go. (second time I read this)

- The CHALLENGES of 'getting big Co execs into small Cos"!

- NEVER 'overcompensating' employees

Immortal quotes:

"There were plenty of companies in the '90s that had launch parties but not landing parties" 🙂

"Play long enough ... so that you might get lucky"

MUST READ (once a year)
