  • Description

    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.

    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.

    A book which makes you think

    A great book which actually forces you to think. No hype around things which happened/are happening. Very concise and clear details about events. Encourages you to think and be practical whilst at the same time being passionate about what you are building. Definitely recommended!

    Helped me a lot to understand now as I am working on my startup to think about what I am actually doing and how I should be doing it.

    Mind-blowing purchase

    Peter Thiel's book is definitely worth reading. He's some fantastic points about start-ups, working environments for new and small businesses and a strong level of conviction for his methodology and beliefs which is nice to read.
