"Cover is an initiative by Backstage Capital to help more aspiring entrepreneurs and investors—regardless of income, location, or profile—have access to invaluable startup-related books.
"One of the most impactful parts of my education in startup venture has been through reading books by tech luminaries. Since 2012, I've of course read every blog and watched every video I could get my hands on, but books continue to play a huge role. Early on, I wasn't always able to afford a book I wanted, so oftentimes I'd sit for hours at Barnes & Noble and read them, or save up for weeks to buy a particular title.
"I'll be showcasing my favorite startup books here and giving away copies to randomly selected applicants. Gifting books is another small way to help level the playing field. I hope you'll enjoy my picks—grab a copy if you have the means, or apply to win our giveaway if you need a little help. If you'd like to help me give away books, please get in touch below!"
How F*cked Up Is Your Management?
by Melissa + Johnathan Nightingale
This book has swears. Any honest discussion of management today needs a few. And it’s just what you’d expect from the creators of the internet famous blog, The Co-pour.
If you’re trying to lead a group of people today, the bad news is that it’s harder than ever. Your employees have impossible expectations of you, and your investors haven’t operated a business in over twenty years. The good news is that there’s hope. You can be the leader your people need, but you won’t get there without some discomfort.
How F*cked Up Is Your Management tackles a massive gap in the conversation about modern leadership. Through personal narrative, and candid storytelling, Melissa and Johnathan Nightingale distill the lessons they’ve learned and the mistakes they’ve made into a new management standard.
