Other books for Startup Founders that make Strawberry Startup a great, complementary read
Here is a list of books I would build for anyone looking to build a strong business foundation.
Note: these are not the BEST books, or the most mind-expanding books. But these are books for someone who wants to improve their lot in life.
MASTERY. Read all of Robert Greene’s books.
Particularly, “Mastery”, “The 48 Laws of Power”, and “War”.
Robert Greene does years of research on each book. He studies the psychological nuances of almost every act of victory and failure in the history of the human race. He pieces together not just the event but the underlying psychology.
As an aside, if you are truly fascinated with the study of peak performance, read “Peak” by Anders Ericsson, who is the original scientist behind the phrase, “The 10,000 hour rule”.
Read these books and think about them. I’ve read them all three or four times.
