Continual learning is crucial in the constantly evolving tech industry.  Built in Austin’s Tessa McLean recently caught up with our CEO, Sean Spector, and a handful of other Austin entrepreneurs to find out what books have made the biggest impact on their careers.

Here’s why Sean recommends The Art of War by Sun Tzu:

“I was given the book Sun Tzu's The Art of War by a boss early in my career. It's an ancient Chinese military treatise dating from the 5th century BC. attributed to the ancient chinese military strategist Sun Tzu – "master sun”

While I don't subscribe to every one of its ideals, over the years I have found many very useful. It's a must read for anyone in business whether you are an entrepreneur, a small business owner or an executive in a large public company. His perspective on war and strategy is relevant to modern american business practices."
