  • Hi Mohammad. Make sure you include in your reading some books about the 'business' side to startups in addition to the technical! – Susan Jones 9 years ago

Not a technical book, but Art of the Start by Guy Kawasaki covers about everything else. Scaling issues will probably be platform dependent (LAMP, .NET, Python, RoR). The creators of StackExchange & StackOverflow have talked about their scaling challenges in their podcast; they could probably write a book.

If you love Getting Real, you should love Rework also.

For marketing strategies check out Dharmesh's book, Inbound Marketing. Dharmesh is one of the hosts of this site.

Also check out this post from Dharmesh. It's the best list I've found on marketing To Dos for a startup.

I think a good book any startup founder must read is "Crossing the Chasm". I have read almost 3/4ths of the book so far and I have learnt so much and have corrected my way of thinking towards marketing a product or a product type.

Crossing the Chasm on Amazon A used or second hand book is good enough for this.

I would recommend reading Founders at Work and then Do More, Faster. They are two of the best books for any internet startup because they cover what it is like to start a business and then how to pull it off.
