Description

Based on the highly acclaimed NPR podcast How I Built This with Guy Raz, this book offers priceless insights and inspiration from the world's top entrepreneurs on how to start, launch, and build a successful venture.  

Great ideas often come from a simple spark: A soccer player on the New Zealand national team notices all the unused wool his country produces and figures out a way to turn them into shoes (Allbirds). A former Buddhist monk decides the very best way to spread his mindfulness teachings is by launching an app (Headspace). A sandwich cart vendor finds a way to reuse leftover pita bread and turns it into a multimillion-dollar business (Stacy’s Pita Chips).   

Award-winning journalist and NPR host Guy Raz has interviewed more than 200 highly successful entrepreneurs to uncover amazing true stories like these. In How I Built This, he shares tips for every entrepreneur's journey: from the early days of formulating your idea, to raising money and recruiting employees, to fending off competitors, to finally paying yourself a real salary. This is a must-listen for anyone who has ever dreamed of starting their own business or wondered how trailblazing entrepreneurs made their own dreams a reality.

Easy listen, good research and story

A lot of little tips that are great reminders about how to build a business. Share the difficult stories and you realize how tough it has been for some people. I found this book valuable in my entrepreneurial adventure.

Inspiring and informative

I heard about this book through the podcast of the same name. I would reccommend this book to any inspiring entrepreneur. The examples of many problems encountered by well known successful large and small enterprises are laid out well organized chapters.

Inspiring

I have followed the podcast of Guy Raz, "How I build this", for a couple of years now. I always loved the stories and the great vulnerability the founders show. I loved listening to all the advices and stories of these founders. As a young founder myself, I was inspired and I even took notes of the advices Guy Raz gave.

Really Great Book and Structure

Kudos to Guy on this one. The structure is such that it's a thoroughly enjoyably listen without feeling overwhelmed by information or too lengthy a narrative. By breaking it down into shorter 20-25 minute chapters (each mostly focusing on a small handful of businesses) and pulling from that singular lessons is very digestible. Picked some great stories and definitely provided a greater context in the delivery of it all, which is why I give it straight 5's. There really is a lot to pull from this regardless of the level you're operating on.

Great book for aspiring entrepreneurs

I loved every minute of this. I’ve heard some of these business’s stories before, but Guy Raz managed to uncover aspects that feel more real and put their founding into a much more relatable perspective. He seems to ask the right questions and really gain the trust of the founders he interviews. I’m left feeling like a really can start the business I want to start!

Inspiring and thoughtful

Like his podcast by the same name, but condensed and more thematic. Guy pulls out lessons and themes he’s learned from the founders he’s interviewed and peppers in how one life journey as well. Certainly one of my favorite books I’ve listened to.

Perfect for entrepreneurs and startup folks

If you’re into entrepreneurship or love following startups, then this one is definitely for you. Regardless of whether you’ve listened to Raz’s podcast before or not, there’s plenty to learn, distill, and enjoy here. For folks new to the “How I Built This” brand, Guy Raz is a journalist and tech enthusiast who interviews some of the world’s most successful entrepreneurs on his multiple-episode-per-week podcast. Together, Raz and these entrepreneurs talk about the stories behind their success, including the struggles, uncertainty, and most difficult challenges. Thus, this book is an expansion of that podcast — an extended, cohesive narrative that pulls the entire entrepreneurial journey together and addresses all of its parts in detail. It’s exciting, interesting, and thought-provoking. For folks who’ve listened to Raz’s podcast before, I think the only legitimate complaint here is that some (if not many) of the stories told in the book have already been covered in the podcast. I don’t think that’s a terrible thing though, since many of those stories are from relatively old episodes. Moreover, when pieced together, all the stories here create a more cohesive, standalone narrative than the podcast ever could. Thus, regardless of how you got here, if you’re into entrepreneurship, then this one is definitely for you. Even though there are some repeat stories, there are also some new ones. And, of course, there’s the passionate personality of Raz that helps bring everything together quite nicely. I really enjoyed it, and I think you likely will too. -Brian Sachetta Author of “Get Out of Your Head”

Fascinating and informative read

As a regular “How I Built This” listener, I wondered whether this book would seem redundant. But while I’d already heard Guy’s podcast interviews with many of his subjects in the book, he manages to draw new insights and connections that are revelatory. His own experience, both personal and professional, along with his boundless curiosity and deep empathy, bring another invaluable dimension to what is one of the best primers for entrepreneurship I’ve ever read. Add to that his sense of humor and down-to-earth, accessible delivery, and you’ve got the ideal audio book.
