我们的第 32 期分享曾经介绍了 Marc Andreessen -- 硅谷顶级 VC 之一的 a16z 的创始人 -- 如何管理他的时间。今天的分享是他的图书馆。 Silicon Valley’s Secrets Are Hiding in Marc Andreessen’s Library

So he (Andreessen) filled his own lobby with books. He spent three nights sorting the titles for maximum effect. Programming books on one set of shelves, Hollywood books on another, business books on a third, and so on.
He (Andreessen) said he didn’t like the lobbies at other VC firms. They looked like "monuments to themselves" filled with "tombstones"—framed IPO prospectus covers and Lucite statues that investment bankers give out when you sell a startup. "It felt like visiting the lobby of an insurance company—instead of somebody you would presumably really want to talk to,"
Today, Andreessen says, we think of Hollywood as the establishment. But in the early days, it pushed against the establishment.

文章选了四本书介绍他的阅读品味,搜了一下,这四本书都挺小众的,都只有一个版本:

Who the Devil Made It

The Star Machine

The Whole Equation

An Empire of Their Own
