Editorial Reviews

Review

"Raw, sometimes useful, always interesting, Dave Balter has delivered a personal account of what it means to be a tech entrepreneur. Books like this are rare indeed, and you won't soon forget it."
--
Seth Godin, author

"
The Humility Imperative is chock full of lessons about entrepreneurial leadership: the sleepless nights, the complex relationships, and the incredible importance of not being suckered into thinking you are the greatest thing since Steve Jobs. And it reflects the Balter I've known for decades: witty, direct, insightful, and often just plain off his rocker."
--
Diane Hessan, founder and chairman, C Space

"If you read only one darkly entertaining and oddly insightful book about startups, leadership, and love, it should be this one. Also, you should read more books."
--
Dharmesh Shah, co-founder and CTO, HubSpot

"Entrepreneurs live in a world of paradoxes. You have to believe you will succeed while knowing that most ventures fail. You have to sacrifice your emotional energy and time to the neverending needs of the business while knowing that you are drawing on reserves from your closest relationships.   Balter distills the complexities, pitfalls, and joys of entrepreneurship in this honest, engaging, and wise book--and surgically narrows in on the contradiction of humble leadership in a world that expects unwavering confidence."
--
Shikhar Ghosh, professor of management practice, Harvard Business School, and co-chair, HBS Rock Center for Entrepreneurship.
