10 important authors and books for software business owners

Every business is a little bit different.

Each business has it's own identity and personality.

I would use the following set of books and authors if I had to describe the personality of the business that I am trying to run, the products that I'm trying to build, and the team that I'm trying to assemble. Buster started out as just me. It was a solo owner business or solo entrepreneur business where I didn't have dozens or hundred of employees around me to learn from and bounce ideas off of. I had to learn through other business owners and the resources available to me.

Check out these books if you are running a small business or startup and need some inspiration or guidance as you guide your business through its earlier days. I hope that they help you as much as they helped me.

  1. Software Craftsmanship by Sandro Mancuso
  2. It Doesn't Have To Be Crazy At Work by Jason Fried, DHH
  3. Great At Work by Morten Hansen
  4. The $100 Startup by Chris Guillebeau
  5. The 4 Hour Workweek by Tim Ferris
