The Monk and the Riddle: The Education of a Silicon Valley Entrepreneur (Hardcover)

The Education of a Silicon Valley Entrepreneur

By Randy Komisar, Kent Lineback

Harvard Business School Press, 9781578511402, 181pp.

Publication Date: March 1, 2000



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.
