I don't know anyone who devours books on business, history, philosophy and futurology quite so avidly as Javier does. For his blog he promises to review the best of these, and to comment on the topics he has been obsessing about for 20 years: technology deals and entrepreneurship.
As digital book distribution takes hold and Kindles multiply like rabbits, it is becoming ever harder to choose good books. And given that most of us allocate precious little time to reading, we don't want to waste it by getting halfway through a book that turns out to be crap.
Traditional Sunday newspapers are fine for reviews of new novels, history books and the occasional pop economics tome, but the longer tail of business books remains largely unreviewed. Not only that, but if you've ever picked one up on the fly you know that quality is all over the map.
Javier has been bending our ears for years with weekly expositions and insights gleaned from new books, interviews with successful entrepreneurs, and hard-won experiences with his portfolio companies. His enthusiasm, positivism and problem-solving approach are both infectious and effective. Now a broader audience will get to see the world through his eyes.
Welcome to the blogosphere Javier!
