Ben Horowitz, cofounder of Andreessen Horowitz and one of
Silicon Valley’s most respected and experienced entrepreneurs, offers essential
advice on building and running a startup—practical wisdom for managing the
toughest problems business school doesn’t cover, based on his popular blog.

business, very few are honest about how difficult it is to run one. 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, from cultivating and
sustaining a CEO mentality to knowing the right time to cash in.
Filled with his trademark humor and straight talk, The
