The list author says: "This is a collection of books I've read over the years which have brought value to me as an entrepreneur. I thought it might be useful to have written down somewhere. I've always been on the product side of the house, so my list will lean that way."
"The ability to execute is key for anyone's success, but for the entrepreneur it's critical. David defines a method that allows you to execute at you maximum capacity at any time. I can't recommend this book enough."
"I have a love/hate relationship with this book. Topgrading has defined my hiring process. It's been an indispensable guide for improving my skills at hiring, coaching, managing and even firing people. However, it's too long, and if you go to the website be prepared for a giant sleazy infomercial. There are priceless gems buried in this book, but you'll have to dig to get to them."
"Problem solving is everyday skill for an entrepreneur. This book has several really cool tools, tricks and techniques to get you thinking outside the box and come up with breakthrough ideas. Just remember, this can be used in every corner of your business, not just product innovation."
"This book covers all the foundations of building a great team by understanding what happens without those foundations. It's a short and engaging read, so no reason to skip this one. If your team is a wreck, this book can save you. If you already have a good team, this will give the tools to take it to the next level."
"I'm a disorganized person. Even if I spent my entire life dedicated to becoming an organized person, I would never be "very organized". As long as I am organized enough, then it's time to focus on where I can be great. That's what this book is about. Find your strengths, and dedicate yourself to them. You'll be more effective and happier than trying to minimize your weaknesses."
"Don't let the title turn you off. It's also a guide for people who aren't quite cowards, but avoid conflict even when they know avoiding it is worse than facing it. The motivation to initiate conflict and tools to deal with it are very valuable."
