The book encapsulates all of the things my middle schooler needs to hear. Hearing the content via audio rather than straight from Dad allowed my son to connect with the info better as Sean knows how to talk to kids in interesting ways. Heck, he kept my kid entertained, he can do the same for yours.
I have read/listened to a number of books that address start ups including several mentioned in this book, yet Zero to One approaches start ups from a perspective I didn't find in these previous reads. Therefore, I consider this book to be worthwhile for anyone that wants to acquire the latest thinking about the nature of initiating or investing in a start up. The second reason this listen will be worth your time is that for a handful of dollars, you get to be inside the mind of a very clear thinker for hours at a time. I find myself re-listening not for the content but for the way the author thinks, questions and approaches life beyond start ups.
Given Jim's success as an investor, he obviously has great insights into markets and the people, incentives and events that move them. In this offering, he doesn't hold back(!) on any one of these, illustrating his points with examples, many of which were headlines; the value being that Jim lived some of these headlines and provides new insights. He candidly points out where incentives are aligned to create mismanagement and offers rational readers many opportunities to work around these issues for personal and investment gain.
you don't need to hear any of this. If you have not read one of the Wizards books, don't expect much more than a few high level platitudes in exchange for your time.
