Sramana Mitra is a technology entrepreneur and strategy consultant in Silicon Valley. Her book Entrepreneurial Journeys is a series of interviews with successful technology entrepreneurs.
The book covers a lot of ground. It has a dozen interviews spread across 6 chapters. Given the state of the economy, I enjoyed the chapter on bootstrapping the most.
The structured interviews in the reader to learn how these people created break through ideas and organizations. I was already familiar with most of the companies and people mentioned in the book, but the interviews contained a lot of useful information that was new to me.
I can also report, based on knowing some of those interviewed, that Mitra does a great job capturing who they are and how they work.
Anyone interested in tech start-ups will find this book both interesting and informative. Its interview format and chapter structure also make it easy to read in bite sized chunks.
