Max Levchin's Review:

What are your thoughts on the “The Paypal Wars” book?

Mixed bag — some stuff is spot on, some views/explanations are fairly one-sided, and [there are] a handful of factual errors. Eric was there for a lot of the action, but not all of it, and so some of that shows. Generally, still an entertaining read.

Max Levchin's Review:

Personally, I prefer less advice, more history. From my favorite business segment: Too Big To Fail, Ascent of Money, When Genius Failed, etc. Books on applied psychology (Influence, Predictably Irrational) are another way to round out primarily technological education.
