THE XX FACTOR
How the Rise of Working Women Has Created a Far Less Equal World
by Alison Wolf 
New York Times Book Review Editor’s Pick
I
n this well-researched book, noted British academic Alison Wolf examines why more educated women work longer hours, why having children early is a good idea, and how feminism created a less equal world. Her findings will inspire fierce debate and expand the conversation about women’s role in society.
“Wolf has written an exhaustive, intelligent, thoughtful and at times provocative and idiosyncratic analysis of what it is to be an elite woman. By laying out the choices that women are faced with and the consequences of their actions, Wolf is ensuring that we do not have to walk blindfold into the future.” — 
The Financial Times
“Meticulously researched, global in reach and grounded in data,
The XX Factor
elevates and informs a jaded and adversarial debate that often turns on sound bites and anecdote.” —

efining and expanding on his start-ups course at Stanford, Silicon Valley legend Peter Thiel says that progress comes in two forms: Vertical and Horizontal. Vertical progress is building new ideas from the ground up. Horizontal progress means copying or iterating on products, ideas, and solutions that already exist. To create lasting value, Thiel argues, we must strive for vertical progress.
Zero to One 
 urges innovators in all fields to find a new frontier. The next great company won’t be another Microsoft or Apple—those have been done. Instead it will be something completely new that we have yet to dream up.
