"EVERY MOMENT IN BUSINESS HAPPENS ONLY ONCE. The next Bill Gates will not build an operating system. The next Larry Page or Sergey Brin won't make a search engine. And the next Mark Zuckerberg won't create a social network. If you are copying these guys, you aren't learning from them. It's easier to copy a model than to make something new: doing what we already know how to do takes the world from 1 to n, adding more of something familiar. But every time we create something new, we go from 0 to 1. The act of creation is singular, as is the moment of creation, and the result is something fresh and strange. Zero to One is about how to build companies that create new things. It draws on everything I've learned directly as a co-founder of PayPal and Palantir and then an investor in hundreds of startups, including Facebook and SpaceX. The single most powerful pattern I have noticed is that successful people find value in unexpected places, and they do this by thinking about business from first principles instead of formulas. Ask not, what would Mark do? Ask: WHAT VALUABLE COMPANY IS NOBODY BUILDING? "-- "Thiel starts from the bold premise that we live in an age of technological stagnation, even if we're too distracted by our new mobile devices to notice. Progress has stalled in every industry except computers, and globalization is hardly the revolution people think it is. It's true that the world can get marginally richer by building new copies of old inventions, making horizontal progress from "1 to n." But true innovators have nothing to copy. The most valuable companies of the future will make vertical progress from "0 to 1," creating entirely new industries and products that have never existed before. Zero to One is about how to build these companies. Tomorrow's champions will not win by competing ruthlessly in today's marketplace. They will escape competition altogether, because their businesses will be unique. In today's post-internet bubble world, conventional wisdom dictates that all the good ideas are taken, and the economy becomes a tournament in which everyone competes to reach the top. Zero to One shows how to quit the zero-sum tournament by finding an untapped market, creating a new product, and quickly scaling up a monopoly business that captures lasting value. Planning an escape from competition is essential for every business and every individual, not just for technology startups. The greatest secret of the modern era is that there are still unique frontiers to explore and new problems to solve. Zero to One shows how to pursue them using the most important, most difficult, and most underrated skill in every job or industry: thinking for yourself"--… (mere)

It's a quick read, with some unconventional thinking and practical advice for startup founders.

Some good insights amidst a torrent of generalizations based on n = 1.

The advice to focus on niche, power user customers first (as opposed to competing head-on with the incumbents) is genius. His discussion of competition vs monopoly is also great food for thought. But you get that at the cost of many pages of “X is a good strategy because I say it is”. Also, he doesn’t understand trade. And some passages haven’t aged well even though it’s a 3-year old book (e.g. his downplaying machine learning because it can only achieve ~75% accuracy in cat detection; boy, what a difference three years can make).

Still worth it though - the book is short and you can finish in less than a day. ( )

While reading Elon Musk's biography, he touches quite a bit on his time at Paypal, including working with Peter Thiel. When I realized Thiel also had a biography out, I knew it would be next.

This book leads with a question: "What important truth do very few people agree with you on?". When I heard this, I had to pause the audiobook and think this one through. Before I knew it, I'd been stewing on this question for over an hour!

The next biggest takeaway was the idea that the next "big thing" won't be a tweak on existing piece of software, but a completely new market. Bill Gates won the operating system money. Google the Search Engine market. Facebook the social network. It's better to dive into a new category than try to copy an existing one. ( )

The title is the message. Gives good insight into the minds of top entrepreneurs. ( )

This book wasn’t a typical read for me and I don’t know a whole lot about business in general, but what I did like about this book was that he didn’t push the “just work really hard and you’ll be successful” agenda. He made it clear that there’s more to it than hard work, wanting something badly enough, and having luck. Also, the fact that I could make it thru this book to the end says something. ( )

One of the most unique and thought-provoking books about entrepreneurship.
