The Law of Power: Venture Capital and Creating a New Future by Sebastian Mallaby
- Recommended by Brian McCullough, GP at Ride Home Fund; Aziz Gilani, managing director at Mercury Fund, who added it as a textbook for his VC class at Rice; and Arvind Purushotham, head of Citi Ventures, who made this comment:
“’The Law of Power: Venture Capital and Creating New Futures’ does a great job highlighting the importance of discovery and learning in the worlds of venture capital and startups. Mallaby perfectly illustrates the powerful laws that govern which discovery succeeds in venture capital and which does not. His analysis of the highs and lows adds color to the world of adventure and how it determines how we see our future.”
