Review: Zero to One

:: Peter Thiel, non-fiction, non-technical, startup, entrepreneurship

Zero to One

Zero to One collects the edited version of a college course on Entrepreneurship taught by Peter Thiel, co-founder of PayPal and Palantir1. It analyzes the ground on which a startup can prosper, drawing examples from both his personal experience and from the usual success cases, even though, maybe. in this book there aren’t so many, or at least are not presented as a dry collection of anecdotes.

Review: La nuit de feu

:: literature, Eric-Emmanuel Schmitt, fiction, non-technical

La nuit de feu (French cover)

La nuit de feu is a book by the French author Eric-Emmanuel Schmitt and is part of my effort to learn this fine language by also reading it. I had read another book by the same author this year, and I wasn’t enthusiast about it; I also recognize, though, that the first 10 or 20 books I read in a language I don’t master are inevitably penalized in my judgment. But oh well, c’est la vie.
