Book Overview

About the Author of Zero To One

Peter Thiel knows a few things about entrepreneurship. He is the billionaire cofounder of PayPal and Palantir and an investor in hundreds of startups. He even taught a course about startups at Stanford University in 2012. The course was designed to teach students how to think differently and to create their own inspiring futures. The goal of this book was to redistribute this course material to a wider audience because Thiel believes the future can happen anywhere, even outside of college and Silicon Valley. The concepts and tools found within this book will help you see things differently in order to create a legendary future.

“…successful people find value in unexpected places, and they do this by thinking about business from first principles instead of formulas.”

– Peter Thiel

Chapter 1

The Challenge of the Future

The future is unpredictable but two things are certain:

1. It will be different from today’s world.

2. It must stem from today’s world.

There are also two types of progress:

1. Horizontal progress – copying an existing process.

➢ Example: Globalization is tied to horizontal progress because it is the act of making existing things work in different places.

2. Vertical progress – creating a new process.

➢ Example: Technology is tied to vertical progress because it is defined as a new and better way of doing things.

Many new startups and entrepreneurs focus on creating horizontal progress and copying other success stories. Instead, new startups should emphasize new thinking and group collaboration to create vertical progress in a world where many processes are still outdated. The concept of creating vertical progress is the foundation for the remaining chapters.

Memorable Quote

“A new company’s most important strength is new thinking: even more important than nimbleness, small size affords space to think.”
