Jeff Bezos, Warren Buffett, and Bill Gates all credit their success to luck. Peter Thiel, the serial entrepreneur, venture capitalist, and billionaire, has a different take on it.

In his book "Zero to One," Thiel explains why he rejects the idea that success is dependent on luck and how to build a better, more definitive future for your company.
