Q. - What's your favourite business book you'd advise to young entrepreneurs and why? M.L. -Some good ones from the "pure business" category: Zero to One, The Hard Thing About Hard Things, The Innovator's Dilemma, Good to Great, etc. Personally, I prefer less advice, more history. From my favorite business segment: Too Big To Fail, Ascent of Money, When Genius Failed, etc. Books on applied psychology (Influence, Predictably Irrational, etc) are another way to round out primarily technological education :)      source
This week I finished reading these two books. Grateful to @ChadMhako who recommended Zero to One - a must read for all thinking of starting a business. @staffordmasie recommended Life After Google - a tour de force. Please share what book you are reading for the benefit of others      source
There’s a lot of business books out there. 99% of them are BS. Read this one. So many concepts really changed my attitude about not only business but capitalism.      source
18/ Zero to One. @peterthiel challenges the assumption that competition is the essence of business. Rather, innovate and execute in ways that create value where none currently exists. Overcome the tendency to chase the same things everyone else does. @bgmasters      source
