A definitive book for any CEO - first time or otherwise - of a high-growth company.
While big company CEOs are usually groomed for the job for years, startup CEOs aren't - and they're often young and relatively inexperienced in business in general.
Author Matt Blumberg, a technology and marketing entrepreneur, knows this all too well. Back in 1999, he started a company called Return Path, which later became the driving force behind the creation of his blog, OnlyOnce - because "you're only a first time CEO once."
Now, more than a decade later, he's written Startup CEO. As the fifth in the StartUp Revolution series, this reliable resource is based on Blumberg's experience as a startup CEO and covers a number of issues he's faced over the dozen years he's been a CEO.
Engaging and informative, this book is essential reading for any, and every, CEO.

Five stars for the right audience
The information was spot on. Very valuable and thorough. For someone like me who is looking for angel money to become the CEO of a startup, it was just what I needed. The only caveat is that I'm highly educated and have a lot of experience in the nuts and bolts of business and accounting (Master's Degree in Accounting, Certified Management Accountant). So someone who has a dream and an idea but no business (and especially accounting) experience might do well to shore up other weaknesses first before hitting this one. I say that simply because I'm thinking of entrepreneur CEOs that I work with who lack the fundamental skills of running a business, in which case this book is like getting a bigger engine for your car while ignoring that the car doesn't have tires.
