It's a book of interviews with people who founded high-tech companies. It's pretty darned interesting to hear the stories from the horses' mouths, as it were. There's not just one "Founder story". Reading just one person's startuppy rantings won't tell you much; there are plenty of books written by one
(or, all too often, zero) founders each, giving you one deci-elephant's worth of the big picture. But Founders at Work has it all. Folks who knew what they wanted to build. Folks who just knew that they wanted to work together. Starting on some sprawling thing and noticing that one little feature was popular; then focusing on that feature. Good stuff, check it out.
