Book: The Hard Thing About Hard Things

htahtI really, really enjoyed The Hard Thing About Hard Things: Building a Business When There Are No Easy Answers (Amazon). So much so that I read the whole thing in a day (something I regularly do with novels, but not so regularly with non-fiction).

It’s compelling because it’s about difficult answers to shitty situations. Because it’s so honest. This is a man who succeeded beyond what most of us even dream of, and he’s open about the personal and physical cost to him along the way.

I’m not particularly enamoured of the VC model, my aspirations are around freedom and building things that are cool or useful (ideally, both), not around running a Fortune 500 company. But I still found this book so interesting, and so insightful. Highly recommend. Read it. Meanwhile, I’ll read it again.
