Founders at Work

The new book, Jessica Livingston's Founders at Work, is highly recommended by several folks, including Guy Kawasaki and Paul Kedrosky.

Snippets from Founders at Work:
All the best things that I did at Apple came from (a) not having money and (b) not having done it before, ever. Every single thing that we came out with that was really great, I'd never once done that thing in my life.
—Steve Wozniak, founder of Apple, page 36
I originally had my parents moderating, since they were retired, and after a few days I asked my dad how it was going. He said, "Oh, it's very interesting. Mom saw a picture of a guy and a girl and another girl, and they were doing..." So I told Jim, "Dude, my parents can't do this anymore. They're looking at porn all day."
—James Hong, founder of HotOrNot, page 380
