Publishers Weekly wrote of the book: “Thiel touches on how to build a successful business, but the discussion is too abstract to offer much to the next Steve Jobs—or Peter Thiel.” Jason Shen reviewed the book, issuing a strong recommendation to readers to buy it. According to Shen, the best part of the book was the idea that successful startups are based around secrets, whereas the worst part of the book was Thiel's favoring startups that have a grand plan upfront. In November 2014, Timothy B. Lee reviewed the book for Vox.com, writing that although Thiel's book contained some good advice, he made the advice sound more contrarian than it really was, did not provide sufficiently concrete advice, and made some questionable claims. In The New Atlantis, James Poulos compares Thiel to Frederich Nietzsche and argues Thiel, “the most political and theoretical of the supernerds,” writes esoterically in Zero to One, when he “raises the prospect of a remarkably comprehensive failure among our best and brightest.”
