      Why is there a shipping charge for this item?

      Sellers with Flipkart Assured waive off the delivery charge for Orders over Rs 500. For Orders under Rs 500, a nominal delivery charge is added per item.

      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:

      • Product's availability with the Seller
      • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

      Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

      If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

      Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

      • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
      • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
      • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

      At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

    Zero to One : Notes on Startups, or How to Build the Future is a book on entrepreneurship, based on a lecture Peter Thiel delivered at Stanford in 2012.

    Summary of the Book

    In 2012, Peter Thiel spoke to software engineers at Stanford, inspiring them to think boldly and try to carve out the future. He spoke of his own experiences, explaining the world of entrepreneurship from a personal point of view. Blake Masters was among the audience, and he recorded the lecture through detailed notes and posted them online. The posts went viral, and soon there was a need for a book which spoke more about Thiel’s ideas on entrepreneurship. In the current age, technology is beginning to stagnate. Information technology has grown at a rapid pace, but progress must not be limited to computers. Thiel explains that the next big entrepreneur will not have built an operating system or a search engine. Instead, tomorrow’s champions are going to be those who look at a unique business, roads which have not been taken. In doing so, they will discover that the roads which have been less travelled by will make all the difference between a zero and a one.

    About the Authors

    Peter Thiel is the Don Corleone (Godfather) of modern business.

    This is the guy responsible for building
    multiple multi billion dollar global
    businesses. Reading his stuff is knowing
    from the horse's mouth

    If you are still a Rashmi Bansal lover
    and hooked onto her romanticising
    IIM and IITs then you better go find
    a job soon because most likely you
    will end up working at a company built
    by Peter or his follower gang.

    Most other business books are like
    pipe guns used by tribals infront
    of this artillery.

    Absolute rubbish!

    Paper quality is very poor, dull yellow instead of white, and the state of the book is also quite bad with faded printing. Never expected this from flipkart . a great amount of injustice has been done with such a great book.

    3rd class quality of book. Second hand book got delivered. This was the last time I ordered a book from Flipkart. I would rather pay extra and buy from a book store.

    My Bible

    Hands down, best Business Book I've ever read.Peter Thiel has talked sense.Straight talk, no bullshit and no beating around the bush.
    Though I disagree with his views at a couple of places, but after reading this book, I'm pretty sure what business, if I ever start one, I WILL NOT PICK.
