Nassim Taleb: "When a risk taker writes a book, read it. In the case of Peter Thiel, read it twice. Or, to be safe, three times. This is a classic.”
Elon Musk: “Peter Thiel has built multiple breakthrough companies, and Zero to One shows how.”
Mark Zuckerberg: “This book delivers completely new and refreshing ideas on how to create value in the world.”
Marc Andreessen: "Zero to One is the first book any working or aspiring entrepreneur must read—period."
Patrick O'Shaughnessy: "So much of investing is herd behavior, this will have you thinking different than the crowd."
Ben Horowitz: "Zero To One is a great book. I learned a lot reading it."

One of the books Keith Rabois recommends for entrepreneurs.

This book was on Sam Altman's bookshelf.
Nassim Taleb: “This is a landmark book in social thought, in the same league as The Wealth of Nations by Adam Smith and The Interpretation of Dreams by Sigmund Freud.”
Naval Ravikant: "Fine book but it didn’t need to be an entire book."
Marc Andreessen: "Captivating dive into human decision making, marred by inclusion of several/many? psychology studies that fail to replicate. Will stand as a cautionary tale?"
One of Sam Altman's recommended books for young startup founders.
One of Sahil Lavingia's most recommended books.
Nassim Taleb: "This is something exceptionally rare in the entrepreneurship literature: someone telling you how he overcame his problems and made lemonade out of lemons.
Anthony has skin in the game. He is funny, direct, deep, and insightful. The book is so gripping you can read it standing up. A must read."
Mark Cuban: "In Hopping over the Rabbit Hole, Scaramucci provides invaluable and pragmatic advice on how to start a business, continuously improve your professional acumen and transform failure into opportunity.
An insightful and resourceful guide for any entrepreneur, dreamer or Presidential candidate."
Arianna Huffington: “The most valuable thing Anthony Scaramucci teaches us about success is how important, even necessary, failure is.
As he shows, we all face setbacks ― but it’s how we learn from them that governs whether we ultimately succeed or fail.”
Tony Robbins: "Anthony Scaramucci's new book Hopping Over The Rabbit Hole captures the essence of the Gladiator spirit — check it out!"
Peter Schiff: "With government making it much harder for entrepreneurs to succeed, Anthony Scaramucci's new book is a must read"
Carl Icahn: "Anthony Scaramucci, who I respect, has come up with many excellent insights in his new book."
Stewart Brand: “This spectacular book on how logarithmic scaling governs everything is packed with news—from the self-similar dynamics of cells and ecosystems to exactly why companies always die and cities don’t.
I dog-eared and marked up damn near every page.”
Marc Benioff: "Geoffrey West's Scale is filled with brilliant insights.
He illuminates the laws of nature underlying everything from tiny organisms and humans to cities and companies, and provides a quantitative framework for decoding the deep complexity of our interconnected world.
If you want to know why companies fail, how cities persist and what is needed to sustain our civilization in this era of rapid innovation, read this amazing book.”
Bill Miller: “If there were a Nobel Prize for transdisciplinary science Geoffrey West would have won it for the work covered in Scale.
This is a book of great originality and deep importance, containing startling insights about topics as seemingly unrelated as aging and death, sleep, metabolism, cities, energy use, creativity, corporations, and even the sustainability of our existence.
If you are curious about how the world really works, you must read this book.”
Nassim Taleb: “Each human should learn to read and write, to count, and for those who know how to count, scalability.
Scaling is the most important yet most hidden and rarely discussed attribute—without understanding it one cannot possibly understand the world.
This book will expand your thinking from three dimensions to four. Get two copies, just in case you lose one.”
Vinod Khosla: "The physics behind biology, cities, economics and companies.
Do they grow, scale and die by the same math equations? New insights that are enlightening and delightful."
Nassim Taleb: "Very clear exposition, does the math without getting lost in the details.
Although many of the concepts of the introductory first 100 pages can be found elsewhere, they are presented with remarkable cut-to-the-chase clarity."
Elon Musk: “Written by three experts in the field, Deep Learning is the only comprehensive book on the subject.”
Satya Nadella was so significantly impacted by Deep Learning that he hired co-author Yoshua Bengio to help shape the future of Microsoft’s Artificial Intelligence approach as a machine learning advisor.
Vinod Khosla: "For a slightly more technical read [on Machine Learning], I’d suggest Ian Goodfellows Deep Learning."
Michael Saylor: "This book blew my mind; it is a work of genius. It put together the technical, economic, motivational and related issues around Bitcoin better than anything I've seen.
The best compliment I can give this book is that I read it and I decided to buy $425m of bitcoin. It was the most impactful on our way of thinking in Microstrategy and it made us want to invert our balance sheet to base it on a bitcoin standard."
Anthony Scaramucci: "This is a seminal work and recommended reading for everyone."
Nassim Taleb: "Bitcoin has no owner, no authority that can decide on its fate. It is owned by the crowd, its users.
And it now has a track record of several years, enough for it to be an animal in its own right.
This gives us, the crowd, an insurance policy against an Orwellian future."
Nassim Taleb: "At last, a real book by a real risk-taking practitioner.
The Dao of Capital mixes (rather, unifies) personal risk-taking with explanations of global phenomena. You cannot afford not to read this!”
Patrick O'Shaughnessy: "I just read this book again, my third time.
It is dense, but its central idea will likely cause you to question your investment strategy in SOME way, which is always valuable."
Paul Tudor Jones: “Investors of all kinds will find immeasurable value in this convincing and thoroughly researched book where Mark champions the roundabout.
Using thought-provoking examples from both the natural world and the historical world, The Dao of Capital shows how a seemingly difficult immediate loss becomes an advantageous intermediate step for greater future gain, and thus why we must become ‘patient now and strategically impatient later.’”
Anthony Pompliano: "Always a great read from the best performing hedge fund manager in 2020."
Michael Mauboussin: "One of my favorite science books in 2018"
Nassim Taleb: "This is a monument, not just a book. And the beginning of a new cultural program."
Naval Ravikant tweeted about this book.
Naval Ravikant: "One of my top 3 books of all time."
Nassim Taleb: "Read it twice, once for the diet, once for a rich document in the history of science."
Nassim Taleb: "I've read the book at several stages of my career as it shows the staying power of good down-to-earth wisdoms of true practitioners with skin in the game.
This is the central document showing the heuristics that real-life traders use to manage their affairs, how people who do rather than talk have done things.
Twenty years from now, it will still be fresh. There is no other like it."
Raoul Pal recommended 'Market Wizards' on Twitter.
Patrick O'Shaughnessy: "I’ve read this book three times now, and need to recommend it again.
It is a top five investing book of all time. It will make you question all or large parts of your investing philosophy. It is an absolute classic."
Nassim Taleb: "I closed this book feeling that it was the first book in economics that spoke directly to me.
Not only that, but the astonishing simplicity, realism, and relevance of the subject makes it the only general work in finance I've ever read that seemed to make sense."
Nassim Taleb: “Adapt is a highly readable, even entertaining, argument against top-down design.
It debunks the Soviet-Harvard command-and-control style of planning and approach to economic policies and regulations and vindicates trial and error (particularly the error part) as a means to economic and general progress. Very impressive!”
Patrick O'Shaughnessy: "Using excellent examples, Tim Harford explains that to make progress, you must fail often and fail productively."
Vinod Khosla: "It's network theory at its finest.
It transforms how our success-obsessed society approaches their careers and long-term goals."
Nassim Taleb: "This is not just an important but an imperative project: to approach the problem of randomness and success using the state of the art scientific arsenal we have. Barabasi is the person."
Nassim Taleb: "I read this book in a single sitting."
Nassim Taleb: "Excellent book"
Nassim Taleb: "I spent part of my adult life falling asleep trying to read Burke's "Reflections on the Revolution in France", advancing at a pace of 10 pages every 2 years and three months (two pages are enough to induce coma).
This book does the same job, but is so much fun to read. The author, visibly writes with an attitude."
Nassim Taleb: "Great reference book, very pedagogical"
Nassim Taleb: "Comprehensive, Clear, Well Written"
Nassim Taleb: "I am buying a second copy"
Nassim Taleb: "Please Please READ This Book! Read it TWICE!"
Nassim Taleb: "Simply the best: read it at least twice"
Nassim Taleb: "No financial book has the clarity of this text."
Nassim Taleb: "Opinionated, original, and independent"
Nassim Taleb: "The best statistics book I've seen"
Nassim Taleb: "The Most Complete Overview of Theosis"
Nassim Taleb: "The fact that top-down development methods are great on paper but have not produced benefits ("so far") is a point Easterly has made before, heavily influencing yours truly in the formation his own argument against naive interventionism and the collection of "humanitarians" fulfilling their personal growth and shielding themselves from their conscience. This is more powerful."
Nassim Taleb: "A masterly book"
