- @J_rob1018 My biz book canon: The Origin of Wealth, Certain to Win, Maverick, Out of the Crisis, Alchemy, Zero To One, 7 Powers, The Intelligent Investor
- Best books to read if you're doing a startup: "Zero to One", by Peter Thiel "The Lean Startup", by Eric Ries "The Art of the Start", by Guy Kawasaki "Hooked", by Nir Eyal
- When I read Zero to One, I was really taken by his concept of definite & indefinite optimism in industry. Definite optimism is when you believe the future is bright and you can build it. The US government creating NASA and landing on the moon, for example https://t.co/znbtNN3Hyo
- 2) Zero to One Another classic business book about innovation. Thiel argues for big leaps rather than incrementalism. What needs to be built that we haven't built yet? This is one of the fundamental questions of web3.
- Until the 1970s, the U.S. had a culture of definite optimism. The future is bright because we’re building great things; NASA, highways, etc. Today it’s indefinite optimism, most value is financialization. Companies that make bold bets now rare, like Tesla. https://t.co/TnN5528Wvq
- @jarede It’s a book by Peter Thiel. The excerpts above are from a summary by @AnthonyJCampbel https://t.co/RCKKPHGis0
- I am working on a list of the 100 most impactful books read by curious people. Ten of my most impactful: — “We Were Soldiers…” — “Shoe Dog” — “The Great Gatsby” — “12 Rules” — “Atomic Habits” — “Zero To One” — “Range” — “American Rule” — “Take Ivy” — “Barracoon” 📚👇🏽
- @JohnBostick @farnamstreet @HowardMarksBook I re-read that once a year. Have a handful of books I try to come back and read regularly and that is one of them.
- @mkobach @peterthiel Genius book
- @pradologue I remember gifting these 3 books to entire @wingify team: - Zero to One - Beginning of Infinity - What got you here won’t get you there One time, there was a theory going around in @wingify that I’m trying to brainwash people through books :)
- Put another way, it’s not that reading Thinking Fast and Slow or Zero to One have no value (both great books!) — rather, I think happiness and competence derive from originality and heterogeneity, and that takes exploring.
- @margiki I won’t do justice to the concepts over Twitter. I recommend you read the book. It is one of the most information dense, high ROI books you’ll read and it is short. https://t.co/Yap3hOeCPV
- @noampomsky Missing Sapiens and Zero to One. Also, none of the books spines cracked.
- @JamesClear The Practicing Mind Improv Wisdom Inner Game of Tennis Radical Candor Zero to One 5 Love Languages
- 5. Something Keith learned from Peter Thiel: To scale a startup, you’ll need two things: 1. Become a magnet for talented people 2. Be able to asymmetrically assess other people. Otherwise, you’ll never be able to compete with the incumbents.

- @luciocorp @zebulgar @apd4real Read Zero to One. Also see my investment criteria posted on Twitter on Thanksgiving.
- @lg @bhorowitz Agreed. It is the best tactical business book. Best strategy book: Zero to One.
