In 2012, Peter Thiel spoke to software engineers at Stanford, inspiring them to think boldly and try to carve out the future. He spoke of his own experiences, explaining the world of entrepreneurship from a personal point of view. Blake Masters was among the audience, and he recorded the lecture through detailed notes and posted them online. The posts went viral, and soon there was a need for a book that spoke more about Thiel’s ideas on entrepreneurship. In the current age, technology is beginning to stagnate. Information technology has grown at a rapid pace, but progress must not be limited to computers. Thiel explains that the next big entrepreneur will not have built an operating system or a search engine. Instead, tomorrow’s champions are going to be those who look at a unique business, roads that have not been taken. In doing so, they will discover that the roads that have been less travelled will make all the difference, taking you from Zero to One.
