The Reading List

In Jason Portnoy’s MyMomentum article, he wrote that during one of his initial interviews at Confinity, then CEO Peter Thiel asked him what books he’d read that summer.

Thiel later told him his answer to this question was one of the reasons he was hired.

A few of you wrote in asking what was on this reading list. Valid question, and one I’d wondered myself. Jason was kind enough to share the list with us last week:

  1. The Lord of the Rings Trilogy
  2. Art of War
  3. For Whom the Bell Tolls
  4. Siddhartha
  5. Tao Te Ching

There you have it – not one finance book in sight. I’ll let you draw your own conclusions here.
