Best book for management.

Also, we have platform where users can create collections from their favorite articles, videos etc.

Here's 2 different collection about Leadership

https://jooseph.com/modules/69

I like those collections but to be honest the book is must. Collections are just easy to access

Going from building code to building a team is different for different people, and some resources can help you in that transition should you choose to go through it.

Keith Rabois has an excellent lecture on that entitled "How to Operate"[^1] in "How to Start a Startup". He gets right into it in the first five seconds.

Ben Horowitz has a lecture in the same series: "How to Manage"[^2].

Andy Grove wrote a book entitled "High Output Management"[^3], that's also referenced in both videos. As a matter of fact, Ben Horowitz wrote the foreword of the newer edition of "High Output Management". The book is good.
