A life changing book
First great that you are considering buying the book. The most important step a person can take is the first one. To get the most benefit out of this you need to do two additional things
1) Leave your cynicism at the doorstep and only bring in curiosity.
2) Take action after reading the book.
The book explains a lot of finance concepts through stories and examples. By the end your perspective of money should change. In case it doesn't read it again with less cynicism.
Zero to One
- Written by: Peter Thiel, Blake Masters
- Narrated by: Blake Masters
- Length: 4 hrs and 50 mins
What valuable company is nobody building? The next Bill Gates will not build an operating system. The next Larry Page or Sergey Brin won't make a search engine. 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 10, adding more of something familiar. Every new creation goes from zero to one. This book is about how to get there.
Best book for startup entrepreneur at all levels.

An eye opener
Definitely a must listen for an entrepreneur. Not also for software developers.
The book talks about how small increments cannot lead to success. To actually succeed one needs to monopolise the market and be the last mover. It's not required to be the first but the one who will put the nail in the coffin.
