Andreessen Horowitz general partner Andrew Chen and host Azeem Azhar have something in common: they were both tech company insiders and early-stage investors before becoming authors. They explore why they decided to write their books, how writing intersects with their day jobs, and whether they’d do it all again.

They also discuss:

  • What selling a book online has taught them about e-commerce.
  • How the future for factual books has changed as publishing has decentralized.
  • What books can communicate that other media can’t.
