The best books read by startup founders in 2022 • TechCrunch
We offer everyone another many books every year. It’s a good practice because having more books makes you a more beautiful person, and buying books helps support the arts. Or at least quasi-conceited business book publishers.
Anyway, today we’re wrapping up the TechCrunch Book-A-Thon with a round of recommendations from the Founders. Telling the best books entrepreneurs have read in 2022 follows our list of recommendations from venture capitalists and TechCrunch staff.
Of course, you’ll find lots of business books below. There are also endorsements from founders who stray into the autobiographical and fictional realms. If you need even more book ideas, you can check out both parts of our 2021 list here and here.
