User reviews about the book
Couldn't put the book down
Edgy and real....just what I needed to start the new year. A great reminder that the best business stories are the personal ones...a must have for anyone in business...a great companion indeed to remind you life is a struggle...embrace it
Every founding CEO will relate to Ben's story. I wish I read this book before starting my enterprise startup, I would have avoided plenty of hiring mistakes and employee drama.
Great approachable read!
Very common sense read. Direct and to the point. Really well written.
By Chuck McGuck
Captivating from start to finish. As a young, aspiring entrepreneur, I found many direct takeaways. I'll refer to this piece throughout my journey without a doubt...I also share Ben's passion for rap (could introduce you to a few artists that portray similar messages and struggles. I'm sure you're aware, but didn't include since they are not mainstream and most may not be able to relate).
5 star collection of teachings for sure.
A brutally honest, highly insightful, generous, but also self-serving work. Ben Horowitz is a special human being. Every tech leader should read this book- but they won't. And everyone who reads it, should heed its advice- but they won't.
The Hard Thing About Hard Things
Revelatory and incisive. A hard-nosed look at the underbelly of high-tech entrepreneurship.
Honest and to the point
I’m half way through and I find myself knodding and agreeing with most of the content within this book. I joined a fast growing company that has tripled in size within the past year and I certainly could of used many of the lessons shared in this book.
Specific advice based on various realistic business scenarios
Shows the ugly side of entrepreneurship that is all too often hidden
This book is great if you’re trying to start and also manage a fast growth, technology company. Even if you aren’t, it has some exellent common-sense advie about managing fast growing organizations.
