In continuing with my postings on books that I have finished reading, not those that I have just simply started or skimmed, I just finished the book Founders at Work by Jessica Livingston. The book is a series of interviews with various founders of technology startup companies such as Apple, Lotus, Flickr, and PayPal. Not without its slow points the book was a very interesting read and I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in technology and entrepreneurship. If you are looking for the key to creating a successful startup I'll warn you that several of the philosophies suggested by interviewees in the book contradict each other. This apparently indicates that there is no surefire way to create your startup. Most of the interviews were of perfect length for reading in one sitting so it was a good book to read for awhile and then not get back to for a bit. Pick up a copy today and keep it on your coffee table for when you can't find anything good on tv.

Well some people like to blog about what they are currently reading, but I often wonder if they ever finish the book or if they simple skimmed through it a little bit and it's now gather dust on a shelf. I just finished reading Extreme Programming Explained by Kent Beck. It was very interesting to read and I suggest picking it up if you are interested in the topic of Extreme Programming.
