Ask GH: What growth-related books are you reading right now and what are you learning from them?
I'm reading Launch http://www.amazon.com/Launch-Internet-Millionaires-Anything-Business/dp/1630470171/ref=pd_bxgy_b_img_y because I think the recommendations will be so different from what I normally would do. I'm actually picking up a few useful tips. Unfortunately I've been too busy to read much of it (probably only 1/4 of way in)...
I just read the six books in the Lean Startup series and now I'm reading Steve Blank's Startup Owner's Manual.
I just read these two books from Jay Abraham for the 5th time:
The Sticking point solution
Getting Everything You Can Out of All You’ve Got
These books really challenge you to think growth in everything that you do.
These 2 books are free to download on the site of Jay Abraham. http://abraham.com/profitresources/ Which also includes much more amazing free resources for business growth.
-Ultimate Sales Machine
-Coursera Data Science Track (not a book of course)
Lots of things to takeaway from those who have done it before.
-"Traction" by Gabriel Weinberg. www.tractionbook.com
@yegg Interviews over 40 successful entrepreneurs and creates a frame work he calls Bullseye. What Lean is to product development, Bullseye is to getting traction.
After laying out bullseye, Gabe explores 19 common traction channels intertwining his interviews.
-"Growth Hacking" by Jose and Joe Casanova
I'm reading two books right now. First, the hard thing about hard things to get a better perspective on the types of wartime issues companies face and some of the ways to understand, and get through it. An amazing read so far! Next up the innovators solution to understand where ideas come from and how to follow through in a smart, organized and revenue/growth driven way.
I'm currently reading the 33 Strategies of War, by Robert Greene, Lean Customer Development, by Cindy Alvarez, and The Art of Learning, by Josh Waitzkin. Although two of them aren't growth and startup related per se, still they are pretty useful.
The 33 Strategies of War is amazing! It shows you how to think strategically, something really important in business and life. I find it much useful and applicable than The 48 Laws of Power.
Lean Customer Development is the best book for learning customer development, something extremely important for any startup or entrepreneur.
Finally, The Art of Learning shows how to really think about learning and personal growth.
