The book by Peter Thiel, a famous entrepreneur and investor of large online projects (PayPal, Facebook, LinkedIn, Yelp), is a non-standard and very informative lesson on working with startups.
Til believes that we live in an age of technological stagnation, which we do not notice due to the craze for mobile devices and social networks. Progress can be in any industry or business.
It is based on an art that every leader must master: the ability to think independently. The next Mark Zuckerberg will not create a social network, and the next Steve Jobs will be another ecological operating system and an innovative smartphone. Tomorrow's winners will be able to completely avoid competition precisely because their business will be unique and they will have no one to compete with.
What are the specifics: the author analyzes the high-profile failures of previously popular startups and, using concrete examples, explains why monopoly, and not free competition, is the key point.
