I procured an ORIGINAL COPY of this book from a local bookstore in my city and had to return the book I'd bought from Amazon because the seller "Shri sai book hub" is selling pirated copies of the book. I returned the book immediately because the graphics in the book appeared very poorly printed. However, when I got another copy from a local bookshop I realized what original looks like. Amazon should be careful and take cognizance of about such unscrupulous practices and they should throw out sellers selling pirated books.
Entrepreneurship cannot be taught, but this book does put light on the fundamentals of starting a business.
Our civilization is premised on the promise of the coming of generations impatient with the status quo, itching to wrought change. Change, as is it's nature, can be a double edged sword. If wielded by fascists, anarchists or power hungry egomaniacs, it hinders sensible, benevolent progress. But every once in a while, when wielded by individuals blessed with inspiration, it helps to cut through inertia.
Since the day of Gutenberg, that sword is being passed on almost contiguously from one enlightened to another, separated occasionally by geography or couple of decades. And so that rapier, come as it did through the Bletchley barracks, the CERN browser and a couple of shady garages in Palo Alto, is now being handed by the Don of PayPal Mafia to, well everyone, in the form of this condensed wisdom of our species.
What you do with it, as they say, is upon your sweet will. I, for myself, intend to put it to the test.
Thank you, Peter Thiel.
Book: Feels original, not a digital copy. But paper quality makes it doubtful.
Content: Author express the huge requirement of new ideas and uniqueness. Including success stories of Mark and Musk makes it interesting and inspirational to read.
