Recommended Entrepreneurship Books

I made the following Entrepreneurship book recommendations on Quora so thought I’d share them here as well:

I use the following two books as course texts in my entrepreneurship course:

Effectual Entrepreneurship – Real data and evidence-based research on successful entrepreneurs

The Startup Owner’s Manual – Steve Blank’s step-by-step guide to launching a venture (annoyingly only available in hardback)

Additionally, I recommend the following books for additional reading:

Blue Ocean Strategy – Creating new markets instead of scrounging for shares of existing ones

Crossing the Chasm – Old school, seminal marketing work on moving from early success to sustainable growth

Getting to Yes – The best book I’ve ever read on negotiating

Do you agree with my recommendations? Do you have any others to contribute?

These are the musings of a global cleantech entrepreneur. This blog began as a way to document my experience during the IMD MBA in Switzerland and now is the place where I publish eclectic thoughts on business, politics, fitness, entertainment, travel, wine, sports, and . . . whatever else is top of mind.
