Startup Book Recommendations

Over the last couple of weeks a few people have asked me for startup book recommendations. I’ve divided them up into a few areas I think are important and given a quick snapshot of why I think they’re good. If you’d like more ideas Steve Blank has a longer list. We also run a Bethnal Green Ventures Startup Book Club which you’re very welcome to come along to.

History of technology

Startup stories

Personal productivity



Branding, marketing and sales

I’m sure I’ve probably missed a few but those are the ones that come to mind straight away. Let me know if there are others you’d recommend to a first time startup founder.

    Hey that’s awesome, Paul. Really helpful for someone like me who is just starting out. And good to get ideas of what I should compliment The Lean Startup with. Thanks a lot.
