From the Publisher

At HarperCollins, authors and their work are at the center of everything we do. We are proud to provide our authors with unprecedented editorial excellence, marketing reach, long-standing connections with booksellers, and insight into reader and consumer behavior. Consistently at the forefront of innovation and technological advancement, HarperCollins also uses digital technology to create unique reading experiences and expand the reach of our authors.

HarperCollins was founded by brothers James and John Harper in New York City in 1817 as J. and J. Harper, later Harper & Brothers. In 1987, as Harper & Row, it was acquired by News Corporation. The worldwide book group was formed following News Corporation's 1990 acquisition of the British publisher William Collins & Sons. Founded in 1819, William Collins & Sons published a range of Bibles, atlases, dictionaries, and reissued classics, expanding over the years to include legendary authors such as H. G. Wells, Agatha Christie, J. R. R. Tolkien, and C. S. Lewis.

The house of Mark Twain, the Brontë sisters, Thackeray, Dickens, John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King Jr., Maurice Sendak, Shel Silverstein, and Margaret Wise Brown, HarperCollins has a long and rich history that reaches back to the early nineteenth century and offers our publishing team a depth of experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is Salvation
Reviewed in India on February 24, 2019
The Hard Thing about Hard Things is pure SALVATION.

Written by the well known Ben Horowitz (VC of FB, Airbnb, Pinterest, Twitter), this is Ben's narration as a HARDCORE entrepreneur.

What I LOVE about the book:

- There is no black or white in the world of startup entrepreneurship. It's always a shade of grey.

- The roller coaster ride of an entrepreneur & how SIMILAR it feels to all our journeys. This book is a GREAT leveller 🙂

- Profanity is a mindset. Ben narrates how he handles it (also mentioning its purpose)

- Co-Founder relationship management!

- The constant dread of shutting down / going bankrupt and how the single pointed agenda of SURVIVING pulled Ben and his Company through until stardom.

- When to use statistics and when to use calculus 🙂

- The incredible story of Go. (second time I read this)

- The CHALLENGES of 'getting big Co execs into small Cos"!

- NEVER 'overcompensating' employees

Immortal quotes:

"There were plenty of companies in the '90s that had launch parties but not landing parties" 🙂

"Play long enough ... so that you might get lucky"

MUST READ (once a year)
