An MBA Without the Cost

Josh Kaufman has created the Personal MBA 40, a list of 40 books that contain the information necessary to understand and succeed in today’s business environment. It’s an interesting idea and one that I firmly support, since I tend to learn better from books than from schooling.

There’s also an equally edifying 30 Book MBA in Entrepreneurship at OverMatter.

So, without further ado, here is my list of 11 Books for Software Entrepreneurs:

The Silicon Valley Way
Hackers & Painters
The Tipping Point
Joel on Software
How to Become Ceo
How to Become a Rainmaker
Million Dollar Consulting
Live Rich
Accidental Empires
High Stakes No Prisoners
Competing On Internet Time: Lessons From Netscape and Its Battle with Microsoft
