ABOUT THE BOOK
DON’T ARGUE ONLINE. BUILD THE FUTURE.
The hard way to gain status is to build something. The easy way to gain status is to accuse someone else of being a bad person. It’s a hack, a quick way to gain relative status. Your critique of the existing system may be correct, but you need a product, not just a critique.
Don’t argue about regulation. Build Uber. Don’t argue about monetary policy. Build Bitcoin. Don’t argue about anything—just build an alternative. Build products based on truths other people can’t grasp. If it works, they’ll buy it. Their confusion is your advantage.
THE POINT OF DOING A STARTUP IS TO BUILD SOMETHING NO ONE CAN BUY.
Today money can’t buy you a trip to Mars, a neural implant, or a regenerated limb. In the recent past, money could not buy you a web browser, a search engine, or a smartphone.
This is a golden age for builders. One person can imagine, prototype, and earn money from around the globe.
REALLY CYNICAL PEOPLE AND REALLY DOCILE PEOPLE HAVE ONE THING IN COMMON: THEY NEVER MAKE BOLD MOVES.
This book is a philosophical and practical guide for builders to change the world:
- The mindset necessary to create personal wealth.
- Why all human progress comes from new technology.
- How to build the media companies of the future.
- Where to find and validate ideas for billion-dollar companies.
Eric Jorgenson says, “Balaji Srinivasan has lived an interesting life and overflows with unique ideas. And he’s just getting started. A result of more than three years, this book is an attempt to bring forth Balaji’s brilliant thoughts on technology, truth and the future.”
Sachin Sharma, Associate Publisher, HarperCollins, says, “Eric Jorgenson is one of the sharpest observers around. With The Almanack of Naval Ravikant, he started a novel trend of capturing the distilled thoughts of brilliant minds. In The Anthology of Balaji, Eric takes you inside the mind of Balaji Srinivasan, one of the most celebrated names in the startup space. For readers, this is an important resource to visualize and build their future.”
