The Education of a Silicon Valley Entrepreneur

Description
Transcending the typical leadership book model of lists and frameworks on how to succeed in business, this book is a lively and humorous narrative about the education of a unique Valley insider. It is at once a portal into the inner workings of Silicon Valley--from how startups get launched to how venture capitalists do their deals to how head-hunters make their matches--and a deeply personal account of how one mover and shaker found a payoff bigger than money.
