The best books that venture capitalists read in 2022

Ah, the end of the year. The perfect time to settle into the couch in a food coma and read.

In honor of our love of reading and the fact that giving books as gifts is a cliche for a reason — people love it! — TechCrunch has compiled several lists of great reads for you.

We started with a series of recommendations from TechCrunch staff. But we know that you want more perspectives, so your friends at TechCrunch+ collected myriad recommendations from both venture capitalists and founders alike. Here we have investor favorites, and we’ll follow up with notes from founders tomorrow.

You can check out the 2021, 2020 and 2019 recommendations if you need even more. Enjoy, and may your holiday respite be filled with words.

Venture book favorites, 2022 edition

The Power Law: Venture Capital and the Making of the New Future by Sebastian Mallaby

Recommended by Brian McCullough, GP at Ride Home Fund; Aziz Gilani, managing director at Mercury Fund, who added it as a textbook for his VC class at Rice; and Arvind Purushotham, head of Citi Ventures, who made this comment:

“The Power Law: Venture Capital and the Making of the New Future” does an excellent job highlighting the importance of discovery and learning in the venture capital and startup world. Mallaby perfectly illustrates the laws of power that control which points of discovery succeed in venture capital and which ones don’t. His analysis of the highest highs and lowest lows adds color to the venture world and how it dictates how we see our future.
