Sound Advice: Book of Interest

Ever wonder where successful people get their ideas from and how startups are really created? Well this book, Founders At Work: Stories of Startups' Early Days, by Jessica Livingston will give you the answers you've been searching for and is a must-read. I could not put it down. Out of 32 founders profiled, three are women: Caterina Fake of Flickr, Mena Trott co-founder of Six Apart and Ann Winblad of Open Systems, and Hummer Winblad.

Jessica is a founding partner of Y Combinator, a seed-stage venture firm based in Cambridge, MA, and Mountain View, CA.

If you want to understand business, go buy yourself a copy.
