Zero to One: Notes on Startups, or How to Build the Future

Zero to One: Notes on Startups, or How to Build the Future

Peter Thiel was one of the co-founders of PayPal and also member of the PayPal mafia,  I would say this book is more of his thoughts about how the Silicon Valley works than a know-how book. Anyway I recommended to to anyone interested in business management and technology.

Delivering Happiness: A Path to Profits, Passion, and Purpose

Delivering Happiness: A Path to Profits, Passion, and Purpose

This easter holidays I finished reading this fantastic book from TonyHsieh about his life story and the story of the online store Zappos. Recommend to everyone who enjoys reading biographies and enjoys reading about tech in general.
Here are some quotes from the book.

“Money alone isn't enough to bring happiness . . . happiness [is] when you're actually truly ok with losing everything you have."
“Things are never as bad or as good as they seem.”
“I had decided to stop chasing the money, and start chasing the passion.”
“Envision, create, and believe in your own universe, and the universe will form around you.”
“We must never lose our sense of urgency in making improvements. We must never settle for “good enough,” because good is the enemy of great,”
