About

There will not be the next Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, or Mark Zuckerberg. Those moments in  history happened only once. This is what it means to go from zero to one.

This book teaches about how to build a company that, instead of competing using similar products, will compete by solving a real problem, and will survive at least 10-20 years.
