Although, he has never authored one, Peter Thiel has recommended a bunch of books over the years. We were  not able to find many but we strive for accuracy so if we are missing some recommendations please hit us an email at info@valuewalk.com with name of book and the source of the recommendation. We also want to mention that we earn an affiliate fee if you purchase the book through these links it’s not enough money to buy human blood to inject in attempt to make yourself more youthful (or a garbage bankrupt website which rhymes with Stalker.com), but it might be enough to pay for a used edition of Zero to One (or the cost of theactual value add of a website which rhymes with whaker.com)
