Books

I consume a lot of books on business, startups, marketing, persuasion psychology — and many other topics related to the startup process. Here is a list of what I’ve read in the recent past, and I continue to update this as the list grows.

Lately I’ve been plucking more books from the Personal MBA reading list, created by Josh Kaufman. I highly suggest checking out that list as well.
