I am about a quarter of the way through this book and so far it has been a fascinating read. The thing I like best about the format is that it is presented as “raw” interviews with founders, rather than attempting (as so many business books do) to string together a narrative with selective quotations.

Founders at Work is a collection of interviews with founders of famous technology companies about what happened in the very earliest days. These people are celebrities now. What was it like when they were just a couple friends with an idea? Founders like Steve Wozniak (Apple), Caterina Fake (Flickr), Mitch Kapor (Lotus), Max Levchin (PayPal), and Sabeer Bhatia (Hotmail) tell you in their own words about their surprising and often very funny discoveries as they learned how to build a company.
