    Inhaltsangabe

    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.

    Progress comes from monopoly, not competition.

    If you do what has never been done and you can do it better than anybody else, you have a monopoly - and every business is successful exactly insofar as it is a monopoly. But the more you compete, the more you become similar to everyone else. From the tournament of formal schooling to the corporate obsession with outdoing rivals, competition destroys profits for individuals, companies, and society as a whole.

    Zero to One is about how to build companies that create new things. It draws on everything Peter Thiel has 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 Thiel has 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?

    Pointless Ramblings of a Rich American

    Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

    I expected this audio book to provide a little more insight into how investors think and work. In the end, this book didn't deliver. It presents a very one-side view. Any founder reading this should understand it's written from an American investor's perspective, who wants to get the absolute maximum out of his investments and thus packages statements as absolute truths that from his view encourage the "right" behaviour. Also, he rants a lot about all kinds of sectors (Biotech, Cleantech) and areas of the world (Europe - lazy boring people, China - copycats) and basically states that only white geek-driven software is a good sector to be in. Actual content ("the seven questions every startup must answer") is thin and has been covered in other books much better.

    I still don't know what the book is about

    With great arrogance and a few false facts, the author scopes through a range of seemingly unrelated topics. I'm positive I haven't learnt anything from the book. As a side note, great reader.

    Sehr interessante Gedanken

    Das Buch verleiht Motivation, etwas Neues zu gestalten. Kann ich nur empfehlen für alle, die glaube, dass wir noch nicht am Ziel sind.

    What makes the world go around?

    I read the book shortly after it came out. At that time it was still heavily marketed on the audible website. Usually I don't go for books that have just recently been published and that I feel are heavily pushed. However, listening to the audio sample convinced me that this was my type of book. I frequently listen to books that can broadly be classified as business books, so if you enjoy these too, please continue reading.

    Why 5 stars? The book exceeded my expectations, as simple as that. Please note that this may have been due to my expectations not having been very high to begin with. I say this, because, although the book is a quick listen, there were stretches I found not so convincing. However, overall the book contained some golden nuggets and new perspectives that were compelling enough for me to listen to the book again.

    In "What the Critics Say" Mark Zuckerberg is being cited with the following statement: "This book delivers completely new and refreshing ideas on how to create value in the world." I agree with Mark Zuckerberg for the most part, however, I would scratch "completely" from his statement.

    Game changing perspective

    Peter Thiel provides an excellent explanation of what drives startups, and businesses in general, to success. Some of these views might be controversial,

    Concise analysis and Great Examples

    As an entrepreneur myself, I found the book quite informative and more importantly, thought provoking.

    I specially appreciated the structured layout from idea, team, distribution and scale up (just paraphrasing). They forced me think about "defining" the market for my venture and balancing the "grand vision" with pragmatic moves (strategic and/or tactical).

    I am hearing it now for the 2nd time to consolidate the key lessons and insights. A great experience!!!

    There are better options out there

    There are just a few valuable insights on this book, the seven questions is a good one, for example. The way the narrator reads the book makes it really boring. I had to exercise my willpower to finish this one. I would not recommend. There are better options out there (eg. the Millionaire Fastlane, the 100$ startup)

    boring narration

    while the book itself is interesting it is lacking a deep look into most of the statements and advices in it. The narrator sound most of the time as he is almost sleeping

    Composition of notes

    I preferred watching some of Peter Thiel‘s videos on Youtube where he takes up some of his points mentioned in the book. He‘s definitely not a great writer and the notes seems rather a random composition of topics he has put in some thought. Some ideas are refreshing and are good food for thought.
