Short review of Peter Thiel's "Zero to One"
29 September 2014
Finished reading Thiel’s book this weekend. Because that’s what I do while in bed, trying to get over a cold. It left me with a surprising emptiness, almost an apathy of knowing that the things said in this book will be taken for fact. It’s not that I only disagree with his world view, I actually find him to be dangerous on a similar scale to one his heroes: Ayn Rand. With the difference that Thiel knows how to package things and puts everything into a 200 page pamphlet. It’s agenda setting for the 21st century attention span.
(If this sounds a bit weird, it’s because I formulated it to be a twitter storm. If you don’t know what it is, you’re probably better off continue not knowing. But I also decided that there is no reason why this should remain only to be five tweets and can’t be one, small blog post on a neglected blog.)
