Some people consider Paul Graham‘s essays to be the “Berkshire Hathaway Shareholder Letters” of startups — a must read for all serious about doing well in the field. Having read some of those essays now, it would be hard to disagree. Graham speaks truth to the power of conventional wisdom and tells it like it is, from his personal success as a startup founder and from advising over 200 other founders through Y Combinator.
One particular essay that may convince you to take the leap is this one: Why to Start a Startup in a Bad Economy.
Granted, Paul Graham’s work is focused exclusively on the technology sector, but there are invaluable lessons for startups of all kinds in this essay library. Check it out for some great reading!
