Product Description

Review

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. When Peter and I cofounded Singularity University, we based it on the ideas of exponential change and ‘learn by doing.’ This book clearly explains how to apply these concepts to change the world and overcome the age old afflictions of human civilization.”- (Ray Kurzweil, inventor, author, director of engineering at Google, Chancellor of Singularity University)

“In BOLD, Diamandis and Kotler have written another dazzler. A riveting look inside the world of exponential entrepreneurship—action-packed and action-oriented. I’ve purchased a copy for my entire team at Cisco." (Padmasree Warrior, CTO & Chief Strategy Office, CISCO)

“I loved Peter Diamandis’ and Steven Kotler’s book Abundance, their writing and their Vision. BOLD is an amazing sequel, a book that every entrepreneur should read. It is inspiring, filled with incredible insights and offers a practical how-to game plan for going big and impacting the world.” (Michael Dell, CEO, Dell Computers)

"Expressed with sunny optimism and promise, Diamandis and Kotler share their extensive experience and knowledge, hoping to boost innovative potential within the technology startup arena and inspire readers to "get off the couch and change the world." An empowering and multifaceted "playbook" for the creative entrepreneur." (Kirkus)

"This is a manual for today’s big thinkers to become tomorrow’s bold leaders, using crowd-powered tools accessible to everyone." (Booklist)

"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)

“It makes bold predictions and teaches entrepreneurs how to thrive in the same way as our mammalian ancestors: by being nimble and resilient.” (HuffingtonPost.com)

“The infectious optimism of Bold is inspirational” (New York Times “DealBook” Blog)

"A guide to exponential digital chutzpah from a master of the art of ‘going big’” (Financial Times)

Abundance was a good book with some fresh ideas. Bold felt like an appendix to Abundance, with a few fresh ideas, and a lot of specific tactical advice for execution -- much drawn from the author's experience launching a single crowdfunding initiative. There's some value here, but not a lot of big ideas. Exponential Organizations by some of the author's colleagues should be prioritized for a broader framework of building high-impact businesses that scale.

There is no doubt that Peter Diamandis and Steven Kotler see the so-called "Big Picture" and recognize the problems that pose the greatest challenges. They are obviously convinced that it is possible to "go big, create wealth, and impact the world" and explain how to do that in this remarkably entertaining as well as informative book. Some of the most valuable material is provided during the interviews they conducted of "four who changed the world": Larry Page (Google, where there is "a healthy distrust of the impossible"), Elon Musk (Tesla and Space X), Sir Richard Branson (Virgin Group), and Jeff Bezos (Amazon). Why these four?

"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.

This book offers a great perspective on think exponentially and having the mind set for continually challenging taken for granted beliefs about the world, technology, and business. One part I felt was missing from this book was a chapter on ecological limits and the powerful role crowd bas technology has the potential to challenge this issue as well as many other knowledge-communication based issues. This is a must read.

This is THE business book not only for our contemporary times but for generations to come!

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!

There is so much to say about this book, however, one main thing is that it’s simply awesome. Uber entrepreneur Peter Diamandis give a lessons on how to do it big, whether it’s your career, your business, your passion. The book touches on every big movement that is impacting the world today, especially from a technological standpoint. You will read about five technological things that he thinks will change the world. I love the chapter on the secrets of going BIG and Peter’s law: “If anything can go wrong, fix it!”
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!!

This book is a must read for anyone who wants to understand and prosper from the exciting changes that technology is making in our world. You can't fully appreciate the current world economy until you've read this book. I am not exaggerating. The media won't clarify where you stand economically because most people in the media don't see the big picture that involves money, digital technology, and a rate of exponential change that is transforming our lives in a blink. When you understand the ideas in "Bold," you will discover powerful reasons to be joyful about the future.
