Recently, I read a book, Zero to One, written by Peter Thiel. He was the founder & ex-CEO of Paypal.
The book is about how to do a great business, notes on startups and mainly talks about how to build better future.
But, right now I am not talking about the book overall. I really like about one of the chapter he was quoting from one of the book written by Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina
If translate it into bahasa would be like this,
“Setiap keluarga yang bahagia itu serupa,
setiap keluarga yang tidak bahagia, tidak bahagia dengan caranya masing-masing.”
I love the idea how he put it on this book by saying that that quote on family is different in business world. He’s saying that,
“Business is the opposite. All happy companies are different: Each one earns a monopoly by solving a unique problem. All failed companies are the same: They failed to escape competition.”
I recommend this book if you’re looking for business book that easy to read on. It’s not like reading Intelligent Investor or Moneyball that confusing with many stranger word as non-economic person.
