A wide-ranging discussion with Ben Casnocha

Ben Casnocha

A few months ago, I had the pleasure of meeting Ben Casnocha , entrepreneur and author of My Startup Life: What a (Very) Young CEO Learned on His Journey Through Silicon Valley. Ben is one of the most intelligent and thought-provoking business bloggers I’ve come across, and I’ve been following his work for years now.

Ben had quite a few questions for me about how the Personal MBA was developed, and our conversation ultimately turned into an extensive examination of cognitive bias, mental models, systems and processes, and the role of books in self-education. It’s one of the most in-depth interviews about the Personal MBA that exists, and you can read the whole conversation on Ben’s blog.

I think you’ll find it very interesting reading.
