The best books you ll read are typically recommended by people you like or admire.
Which is why we re partnering up with bookshelf.tips to do a monthly roundup of short book recommendations from the apex of the tech world.
Bookshelf.tips asked entrepreneurs, CEOs, and other visionaries share stories about books that changed their life or the way they do business – in less than 50 words, because we know you re busy people but hopefully not too busy to read these books .
To kick off this monthly roundup, we ve collected the favorite books of the CEOs of Y Combinator and Basecamp, but also co- founders of companies like Duolingo, Airbnb, and Betalist.com.
My favorite business book is Zero to One by Peter Thiel.
It was good to get the perspective from somebody who had built a very successful business.
