New York Times bestselling author of ORIGINALS, GIVE AND TAKE, and OPTION B with Sheryl Sandberg
"This book is a framework to inspire aspiring innovators to make the leap--to evolve from employees/pawns of stagnant and dying corporations suffering "paralysis by analysis," to successful entrepreneurs who can embrace the right risks, walk the edge of uncertainty with confidence and good judgment, avoid (most) beginners mistakes and turn the inevitable failures into future triumphs. An optimistic book, well-articulated and worthwhile; an antidote to doomsday prophecies about the future of work."
