2. Zero to One | The Holy Grail for Entrepreneurs
Let me tell you this book is not for the absolute beginners, if you have read any entrepreneurship books previously then only you should give this one a go. Zero to One presents at once an optimistic view of the future of progress in America and a new way of thinking about innovation: it starts by learning to ask the questions that lead you to find value in unexpected places.
This book explains some common-sense things which we lose sight of in this fast moving world. Thiel begins with the contrarian premise that we live in an age of technological stagnation, even if we’re too distracted by shiny mobile devices to notice. Information technology has improved rapidly, but there is no reason why progress should be limited to computers or Silicon Valley. Progress can be achieved in any industry or area of business. It comes from the most important skill that every leader must master: learning to think for yourself.
Doing what someone else already knows how to do takes the world from 1 to n, adding more of something familiar. But when you do something new, you go from 0 to 1. The next Bill Gates will not build an operating system. The next Larry Page or Sergey Brin won’t make a search engine. Tomorrow’s champions will not win by competing ruthlessly in today’s marketplace. They will escape competition altogether, because their businesses will be unique.
"Every moment in business happens only once.
The next Bill Gates will not build an operating system. The next Larry Page or Sergey Brin won’t make a search engine. And the next Mark Zuckerberg won’t create a social network. If you are copying these guys, you aren’t learning from them.
It’s easier to copy a model than to make something new: doing what we already know how to do takes the world from 1 to n, adding more of something familiar. But every time we create something new, we go from 0 to 1. The act of creation is singular, as is the moment of creation, and the result is something fresh and strange."

One-sentence summary of “Think and get rich“: This book tries to explain why some people amass great fortunes while others fail to make ends meet. Since its launch in 1937, this has always been the reference book for people who want to get rich.
Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill is one of the bestselling motivational books of all-time. Inspired by a suggestion from industrialist Andrew Carnegie, Hill explains the philosophy that helped the wealthiest and most accomplished members of society succeed.
Is there a reproducible method to learn how to become rich?
The answer is yes! And this method, the fruit of 25 years of research, has been divided into 13 steps. Napoleon Hill tells us that personal enrichment is possible provided we know one and only one secret. This secret will never be precisely named in the book, but will nonetheless be evoked more than a hundred times because this secret is more effective when it is simply left in sight, where those who are willing and looking for it, will be able to use it… But it is clear that through these 13 steps, you think and become rich.
