 An eBook title of interest is: The Silicon Valley Model: Management for Entrepreneurship by Annika Steiber and Sverker Alänge.

An extract from the publisher's website states:

This book presents a new management model that has evolved in Silicon Valley. The future will favor companies that can migrate to a management model, better suited for the times.

This book imbibes latest results from a year-long study of Google’s approaches to management, and finds similar principles being applied at companies including, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Tesla Motors, and Apigee. By distilling on the aspects that work across a variety of innovative firms, the authors present a synthesis that could have profound implications for managers everywhere.
