Based off Raz’s highly acclaimed How I Built This podcast on NPR, his book of the same name is a New York Times and Wall Street Journal best-seller, and the #1 best-selling business book on Amazon in 2020. It provides insights and inspiration from the world’s top entrepreneurs on how to start, launch and build a successful venture.
