@eriktorenberg Great AMA. Loved the response when someone asked whether Palantir was a front for the CIA. "No, the CIA is a front for Palantir"

@eriktorenberg Bought. Mostly due to how awesome that AMA was...

@holdenbrad If you're unfamiliar - check out the Palantir wikipedia page.Thiel co-founded the company with a little VC fund called In-Q-Tel. In-Q-Tel is an arm of the CIA.

@davemorin curious what was most compelling / biggest take away for you dave!

This looked like an interesting book. However when you analyze companies and products in hindsight, its always easy to find the results that match your thesis. So looking forward to seeing what they came up with. (This was also a selection for our newsletter this week.)

Extremely solid so far. A must read for startups.

Just finished the audiobook this weekend. It really is worthwhile. No BS. The audio version is narrated by Blake Masters (co-author) and gives a very personal feel. It's not verbose, and the points / concepts are unique. Definitely (definitely) worth the time!
