“Bold is a visionary roadmap for people who believe they can change the world---and offers invaluable advice about bringing together the partners and technologies to help them do it.”?>??> (President Bill Clinton)
"BOLD is an essential navigation tool for any proactive CEO who wants to remain relevant. In the next decade it is reasonable to assume that some of the corporations at the top of the Fortune 500 will be displaced by the 'exponential entrepreneur'. History tells us that if we don't proactively change and adapt, change will be imposed on us. BOLD, spells out the implications and opportunities driven by exponential changes transforming our world." (Jim Moffatt, CEO of U.S. Deloitte Consulting, LLP)
“Abundance showed us where our world can be in 20 years. BOLD is a roadmap for entrepreneurs to help us get there.” (Eric Schmidt, Executive Chairman, Google)
“If you read one business book in the twenty-first century, this should be the one.

An empowering and multifaceted "playbook" for the creative entrepreneur." (Kirkus)

"This invigorating discussion drives home the point that with better tools than we've ever had before, what we need most of all are great leaders." (Publishers Weekly)

"We define an exponential entrepreneur as someone who is using exponential tools and technologies to reach large populations of people and take on billion-person challenges that were previously only addressable by governments. We studied the work of Page, Musk, Bezos, and Branson because of the incredible reach and impact they have had. Each of these men started with no inheritance and built companies that have spanned the globe. If you want to take on grand global challenges, you need to be able to think at scale. These four individuals have clearly demonstrated that they have the wisdom and skills needed to think on a global level."
It is important to keep in mind that the exponential entrepreneur's mindset they share is one that business leaders in any organization can develop, whatever its size and nature may be, and that includes owner/CEOs of small to midsize companies ass well as those who head business units or divisions within Fortune 100 companies.Read more ›
It is essentially the textbook for the new breed of exponential entrepreneurs who understand that the world has already totally changed (in an exponential way) and that things are never going back to the way they were (the linear way). Personally, I loved the ability of the authors to communicate effectively their passion for exponential tech and creating a world of abundance for all: Mr.Diamandis and Mr. Kotler nailed it and nailed it BIG AND BOLD in this one.
This is the stuff that epic genius is made of and I totally recommend this book to anyone who is a bit curious about the amazing world emerging around them in these FAST changing times. In this brave new world emerging, be prepared to disrupt your industry or to be disrupted. It's definitly time to go bold :)
PS: I also love the work of Mr.Diamandis with Singularity University and Abundance360. He is just awesome!
You will also learn some billionaire wisdom from some of the world’s most prolific entrepreneurs and billionaires. The book also gives prescriptive guidance of how to use the crowd to get the information you need and how to fund your projects. You can dream big and have confidence that you can achieve these dreams. Read the book and be inspired!!
