Peter Thiel is an entrepreneur and investor. He started PayPal in 1998, led it as CEO, and took it public in 2002, defining a new era of fast and secure online commerce. In 2004 he made the first outside investment in Facebook, where he serves as a director. The same year he launched Palantir Technologies, a software company that harnesses computers to empower human analysts in fields like national security and global finance. He has provided early funding for LinkedIn, Yelp, and dozens of successful technology startups, many run by former colleagues who have been dubbed the “PayPal Mafia.” He is a partner at Founders Fund, a Silicon Valley venture capital firm that has funded companies like SpaceX and Airbnb. He started the Thiel Fellowship, which ignited a national debate by encouraging young people to put learning before schooling, and he leads the Thiel Foundation, which works to advance technological progress and long- term thinking about the future.
Blake Masters was a student at Stanford Law School in 2012 when his detailed notes on Peter’s class “Computer Science 183: Startup” became an internet sensation. He went on to co-found Judicata, a legal research technology startup.
Well written and offered food for thought. No concrete solutions but Thiel explains why in the book. Certainly worth the read.Published 13 hours ago by Fundraising Fan

An easy read
Straight to the point
Chapter 12 to me is the best.
Don't like he gets stock in the same thing for a long time.
One of my favorite books. Really encourages the reader to think differently about business and society.Published 1 day ago by Matt G
That is because I thought it was awesome. Some repetitiveness at times, but not annoyingly so.Published 1 day ago by Michael James
The book did kind of grow on me but now two months later I can't remember a lot about it. Thiel is a monopoly freak and he keeps drumming this over and over again. Read morePublished 1 day ago by Pen Name
What did I just read? Such a rambling book. Not sure what he wants to say. I might try reading it again in a year.Published 2 days ago by Dylan Robertson
