Ben’s experience and expertise make him one of the most important leaders not just in Silicon Valley but also in the global knowledge economy. For anyone interested in building, growing, or leading a great company, this book is an incredibly valuable resource and a funny and insightful read.” -MARK ZUCKERBERG, COFOUNDER AND CEO OF FACEBOOK

“Every management guide presumes that all great companies follow a formula. But successful startups don’t imitate; they build innovations that can’t be copied. Ben Horowitz knows no recipe guarantees success. He has written the first true guide for protecting a startup from self-sabotage.” -PETER THIEL, COFOUNDER OF PAYPAL AND FOUNDER AND PARTNER AT FOUNDERS FUND

 

“Ben’s advice has been invaluable to me over the past few years. He is forthright and direct, acknowledging, for example, that the job of leading can be impossibly lonely, while eloquently providing no-nonsense guidance for managing teams through good times and bad times. Stripping away the veneer of management-speak, Ben’s writing carries the authority of somebody who has been through all of this. The results are simple, thorough, and compelling.” -DICK COSTOLO, CEO OF TWITTER

 

“There is more than enough substance in Mr. Horowitz’s impressive tome to turn it into a leadership classic.” — The Economist
