Can You Recommend Any Books About Successful Web Startups?

Next, I read In the Plex which is the story of Google. While the whole book was amazing, the early stages of Page and Brin getting their project going were really interesting.
Does anyone know any other books that talk about internet startups?

I also enjoyed "Icon", a biography of Steve Jobs.

If you buy a copy keep in mind while reading that the book was written by a kid. No kidding.

I don't know of any other story type books but have you read most of (or any of) Seth Godin books?

I'd imagine quite a number of his books would be helpful to build surviving startups, starting from "The Boostrappers Bible" (free), to "The Tipping Point" and his recent books.

The Financial Times Guide to Business Start Up 2011: The Most Comprehensive Annually Updated Guide for Entrepreneurs
This is a very useful book others have recommended at times, and is full of the essential stuff like legal requirements, lastest grants, taxes, legislation, etc. i.e. actually useful in doing a startup.

It's brilliant and extremely accessible. Like Seth Godin, Gladwell is a single-serving genius.

(1) SmallBizTrends recently did a call for favorite business books. (Small Business Book Awards) From comments I've seen, there are some good ones in there.
(2) Mixergy.com - The host regularly interviews the entreprenuers behind web startups. Some of the interviews are long enough to qualify as books. They're offered as video, audio, and transcript. I usually read the transcripts.

Hi Vernessa! Good to see you here! Very happy you found your way to cre8.
I was checking out other threads in the forum ... Imagine my surprise at seeing you here, and an Admin, no less! Always good to run into you.
Doing a little research on creating local directories led me to Cre8 forum (this thread). Good info around here. Added it to my 'go to" list.
