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.
I enjoyed this book very much, and it was an easy read.
I would highly recommend that anyone interested in business, tech and startups, to read both Masters' notes (available for free online) and this gem of a book.
This is one of two great entrepreneurship books I've read this year - the other is "The Hard Thing About Hard Things".
Well thought out discussions on starting a business and the future state of the world. Helpful insights but not prescriptive which is an honest way to present the subject.Published 15 hours ago by davey quinn

Amazing book. Thiel has great views (not necessarily common views) on very important topics like monopolies and competition. Must read for any entrepreneur. Easy read.Published 1 day ago by Manolo Alvarez
