Ryan Holiday (Fundador/Cheque de Bronze)

Agora esse com certeza é um pouco menos histórico que os outros, até porque a maioria dos perfis são sobre empresas fundadas nos últimos dez anos. Escrito por Jessica Livingston, fundadora da YCombinator, o livro traça o perfil de algumas das startups mais badaladas e bem-sucedidas da história do Vale do Silício. Mostra como os fundadores conseguem criar um crescimento massivo, geralmente com poucos recursos. Agora, não estou dizendo que empresas como Hot or Not se comparam às realizações de Péricles ou Da Vinci, mas você certamente pode ver como este livro captura um momento no tempo - e seus principais homens e mulheres - e o que isso significa. Este é o livro mais atual da lista (além do meu), mas acho que muitos de vocês vão gostar. Além disso, você pode aprender muito sobre o cenário tecnológico de uma só vez.

Bogdan Iordache (Cofundador/Como Web)

Existem alguns bons livros de negócios sobre tecnologia, e vou listar abaixo alguns que considero um bom ponto de partida. Pessoalmente, gosto muito de biografias e leio principalmente biografias de pessoas mortas, porque essas são as mais honestas. Então, como a era do computador ainda é muito jovem, não haverá muitas biografias na minha lista.

Joel Gascoigne (Cofundador/Buffer)

I read Founders at Work in the earliest few months of Buffer, before I had managed to drop my freelance work which I was doing on the side to pay the bills before our revenues grew. It was inspirational and practical at the same time, and laid out very clearly the paths that many of the biggest tech successes took to reach their prominence.

Craig Pearce (Co-Founder/Kid Genius)

What probably helped, ironically, was the feeling of confusion when reading the book Founders at Work: Stories Of Startups Early Days. I read the book when I first became interested in startup culture and I was under the impression there was a formula for success that all startups had followed. While reading the various stories contained within the book, I was confused when every company seemed to follow a different path to success; founders came from different backgrounds, different motivations and started at different ages. There are themes, in many of these stories, but it was the realization that you don’t have to be a 20-something, Stanford Grad, with a Computer Science degree to start a company that really helped me pursue my interest in startups.

Joan Boixados (Founder/everydayCheck)

Computers and Business.

Angela Pham (Content Strategist/Facebook)

Founders at Work is the most valuable business book I’ve ever read, which compiled transcripts from dozens of tech entrepreneur interviews before the bubble burst.

David Kramaley (Cofundador/Chessable)

When asked what books he would recommend to youngsters interested in his professional path, David mentioned Founders at Work.

Santiago Basulto (Cofundador/rmotr.com)

Founders at Work and Coders at Work are really good ones too. They’re filled with interesting and inspiring stories.

Descrição da Amazônia

Founders at Work: Stories of Startups' Early Days is a collection of interviews with founders of famous technology companies about what happened in the very earliest days. These people are celebrities now. What was it like when they were just a couple friends with an idea? Founders like Steve Wozniak (Apple), Caterina Fake (Flickr), Mitch Kapor (Lotus), Max Levchin (PayPal), and Sabeer Bhatia (Hotmail) tell you in their own words about their surprising and often very funny discoveries as they learned how to build a company.

Where did they get the ideas that made them rich? How did they convince investors to back them? What went wrong, and how did they recover?

Nearly all technical people have thought of one day starting or working for a startup. For them, this book is the closest you can come to being a fly on the wall at a successful startup, to learn how it's done.

But ultimately these interviews are required reading for anyone who wants to understand business, because startups are business reduced to its essence. The reason their founders become rich is that startups do what businesses do―create value―more intensively than almost any other part of the economy. How? What are the secrets that make successful startups so insanely productive? Read this book, and let the founders themselves tell you.
