Ben Horowitz analyzes the problems that confront leaders every day, sharing the insights he's gained developing, managing, selling, buying, investing in, and supervising technology companies. A lifelong rap fanatic, he amplifies business lessons with lyrics from his favorite songs, telling it straight about everything from firing friends to poaching competitors, cultivating and sustaining a CEO mentality to knowing the right time to cash in.

Fantastic and insightful

This book is not only the best in terms of practical insights, but also contains the thoughts of a CEO who admits both failures and success. Each chapter, each line of the book is meaningful invitation to retrospect on what and how you do. Highly recommended!

The Hard Thing About Hard Things

There is more than enough substance in Mr. Horowitz's impressive tome to turn it into a leadership classic.
