The Cheap Revolution: Top 12 Books for Entrepreneurs

The Cheap Revolution: Top 12 Books for Entrepreneurs
Sean comments on the cheap revolution blog with some good books to read

This is a good list for the concept stage, I would add “The Innovator’s Dilemma” by Clayton Christensen and “Four Steps to the Epiphany” by Steve Blank for your concept stage list. For a marketing focused list I would point to an article that Mark Duncan (http://www.askmar.com/) and I collaborated on “Crucial Marketing Concepts” that’s available in a short and long form here:
http://www.skmurphy.com/resources/emerging-product-introduction/
the long form also includes book reviews for a dozen good books on new product introduction.

There is also a good list of business books at
http://personalmba.com/recommended-business-books/
that you might want to think about for your Launch Stage section.

I would also second the movies “Startup.Com” and Tucker from Peter Ireland’s list (but none of the others) and add the “Triumph of the Nerds” documentary by Robert Cringely on PBS.

There are the books you read, and then there are the books that change your life. We can all look back on the books that have shaped our perspective on politics, religion, money, and love. Some will even become a source of inspiration for the rest of your life. From a seemingly infinite list of books of anecdotal or literal merit, we have narrowed down the top 100 books that have shaped the lives of individual men while also helping define broader cultural ideas of what it means to be a man.
