      Reed Hastings: Building Netflix

      I read some reviews before purchasing this book, and someone described it as “a long Forbes article.” Now that I’ve read the book, I am keen to agree.

      It was an entertaining read on what led to the birth of the streaming powerhouse: Netflix, its core principles, and the leader behind the company.
