Matt Blumberg, the CEO of Return Path, has just put up a post about the new book he’s working on called Startup CEO: A Field Guide to Building and Running Your CompanyI’m super excited that this is going to be the fifth book in the Startup Revolution series and the first book not co-written by me.

Matt is an extraordinary CEO who I’ve had the pleasure to work with for a dozen years. We’ve learned a lot from each other and his blog at Only Once (as in – you can only be a first time CEO once, and Matt’s been one for a dozen years) should be reading for any and every CEO. Matt’s now putting effort into creating a definitive book for any CEO – first time or otherwise – of a high growth company.

When I started working on the Startup Revolution books, my goal was to expand it beyond my own writing with a goal of creating a large body of work that had relevance to a wide range of entrepreneurs and durability over the next few decades. Matt’s book is the first of what I hope to be a number of new additions to the series.

The five books in the series are now:

  • Startup Communities:  Building an Entrepreneurial Ecosystem in Your City (Feld) (available now)
  • Startup Life:  Surviving and Thriving in a Relationship with an Entrepreneur (Feld / Batchelor) (available January 2013, pre-orders now)
  • Startup Boards:  Reinventing the Board of Directors to Better Support the Entrepreneur (Feld / Ramsinghani) (available summer 2013)
  • Startup Metrics:  Making Sense of the Numbers in Your Startup (Feld / Levine) (available fall 2013)
  • Startup CEO: A Field Guide to Building and Running Your Company (Blumberg) (available in 2013)

Look for a few more additions to the series soon. Matt – welcome aboard the Startup Revolution!
