Synopsis

Investigative journalist Richard Byrne Reilly has published the first biography of Peter Thiel, the controversial billionaire and contrarian behind some of the world's most powerful and disruptive technology companies. "Peter Thiel: Players, Companies, Life," an unauthorized microbiography published as an eBook, illuminates the world view of the man who co-founded PayPal and Palantir, became both the first outside investor in Facebook and the first institutional investor in the newly-legalizing marijuana industry, and is now a pledged Donald Trump delegate. "Players, Companies, Life" recounts the board meeting where Mark Zuckerberg turned down Yahoo's $1 billion offer for Facebook; proffers Thiel's brutal appraisals of tech giants; and tells how a chess grand master's strategy inspired his approach to investing. Above all, Players is an inspiring blueprint on the value of optimism -and how to attain your goals.
