What are some of the good books about Startups to read?
Paul Graham recommends these 6 books:
Paul Graham says,
The best source of information about startups is probably not business books, but histories of particular startups and industries. The most famous is Tracy Kidder's Soul of a New Machine, but there are many good books of this type. I particularly liked Sorensen's My Forty Years with Ford. The one book we encourage startup founders to read is Dale Carnegie's How to Win Friends and Influence People. It's critically important for anyone in business. I'd also recommend Franklin's Autobiography. If you work for a big company and wonder how startup techniques might work for you, The Stratup Way by Eric Ries is the book to read.
