First the Business, Then the Book
a book list by Barbara J. Winter, author of Making a Living Without a Job
shelved under Business
Business books usually fall into two categories: how-to or biographical. In how-to books, the author may or may not be an entrepreneur. Biographical books most frequently are written by someone (and, perhaps, their ghostwriter) who's built a successful business and tells the story of the inception and growth of that undertaking.
Biographical books also may share advice, but often have the added advantage of being inspirational. After all, hardly anyone writes this kind of book to tell a story about how they got an idea for a business and found themselves rolling in success the next day. Personal narratives may not always involve overcoming enormous obstacles, but they have the added advantage of being told from personal perspective and offer the author/entrepreneur’s insights into those events that shaped the business.
