This week’s book was Zero to One: Notes on Startups, or How to Build the Future by Peter Thiel and Blake Masters. Thiel is one of the founders of PayPal and a legend in the business of startups. The book was engaging and full of details worth noting, without breaking too far into technical jargon and the minutia of starting a business. Good solid advice for anyone considering going into business.
This book was recommended to me as a must read by Clay Crocker during a Boots to Business seminar. As someone who is interested in learning as much as I can about starting a business, this was a great read.
- Break down of why startups fail
- How the Pareto Principle (80/20 rule) applies to business
- Insights into how Google, Tesla and Apple are succeeding
- Simple application of big business principles that even small startups can apply
