I picked up this book from a friend thinking it would have a set of ‘rules’ or ‘instructions’… a sort of path that successful entrepreneurs seem to follow to build game-changing companies or products.
Oh was I so wrong and delightfully surprised.
This book is not just a must-read for ambitious entrepreneurs, it’s a must-read for any student, the people who will build the future. It’s a collection of eye-opening observations about the way we live, the way we as humans see things, the things we’ve gotten right and the things people get wrong. He backs up key observations with real phenomena and stories …. he connects the dots in ways I couldn’t quite pinpoint earlier. I don’t want to spoil any more of the book because I want you to read it yourself. You probably won’t understand this out of context but here’s one of the many things that stuck with me:
“Still around the corner they may wait
A new road or a secret gate,
And though we pass them by today,
Tomorrow we may come this way
And take the hidden paths that run
Towards the Moon or to the Sun.”
That’s how you go from zero to one.
