This has been the best book on entrepreneurship I've read to date. Mr. Walton allows us to enter his mind and recreate the story behind the largest retailer in the world - from humble beginnings to how the giant empire was built.
The book is really the 101 of entrepreneurship. Not only that but it is a pleasure to read, written in such friendly tone (remember your grandfather telling you stories?) that I felt that I kind of got to know mr. Walton personally.
I've also did a substantial research on what has Walmart turned into since 1992 since mr. Walton died, and it seems that unfortunately the company was not able to stay true to the many of the core values instilled by its founder.

The Four Steps to the Epiphany launched the Lean Startup approach to new ventures. I am extremely proud to have a chance to review it today. In my opinion it is a must read for every entrepreneur that wants to learn how to build bootstraped products the right way.

In review today is the Mastering Change, book by dr. Ichak Kalderon Adizes in which he discovers basics of his life and management philosophy.
This is the kind of book you read in a single breath, and then reflect on it page by page ruminating on every single paragraph. The book follows entrepreneurial path of Ben Horowitz. It is a collection of stories, and difficulties he had faced, mostly focusing on his tenure as CEO of Loudcloud. The book is a collection of lessons on how to make it through the struggle without quitting or throwing up too much (sic!). It is not about how not to screw up, but what to do after you screw up - which you inevitably will.
In this modern time, we are surrounded by numerous books about How to become successful...something. We all want to find a quick way to become great managers, sales people, rich people. Leaders Eat Last by Simon Sinek may seems similar to all those books, but from my point of view, this book is far more than that. Simon Sinek is a writer that hits straight to the point using concrete examples and true facts. His way of writing is less philosophical and more realistic, but also motivational; it really makes you understand where is he coming from. In my opinion this is truly one of the great books for all those people who are looking for advice on how to run a group of people and Sinek gives us answer to everlasting question - should we put people or numbers first?!
Simon Sinek is at least to me one of the greatest business thought leaders of the time. His talks like How great leaders inspire action, Start with why, Why Leaders Eat Last, Why good leaders make you safe have millions of views. In this books Simon Sinek goes deep into the roots of human biology and psychology to investigate what makes a great leader. He does not only that but he provides an exciting vision for a different world where leaders fulfill their original role - sacrificing themselves to protect others.
