News & Opinion: Crowdsourced Entrepreneurial Reads

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 7:17 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

A few weeks ago, Fred Wilson from kicked up interest in books that entreprenuers should read. Fred, in particular, made the point that "there is way more insight to be gained from stories than from business books." He suggested Kavalier and Clay, Atlas Shrugged, The Prince, and anything by Shakespeare. At the end of his post, he asked for more suggestions. The post generated 191 comments and prompted the creation of a wiki. I pulled all the books from the wiki over into this post and linked to the books. The [FW] tag denotes that it was endorsed by Mr. Wilson himself directly or in the comments of the original post.
