Bold: How to Go Big, Create Wealth, and Impact the World

By Peter H Diamandis, Steven Kotler
From the coauthors of the New York Times bestseller Abundance comes their much anticipated follow-up: Bold--a radical, how-to guide for using exponential technologies, moonshot thinking, and crowd-powered tools to create extraordinary wealth while also positively impacting the lives of billions.
Bold unfolds in three parts. Part One focuses on the exponential technologies that are disrupting today's Fortune 500 companies and enabling upstart entrepreneurs to go from "I've got an idea" to "I run a billion-dollar company" far faster than ever before. The authors provide exceptional insight into the power of 3D printing, artificial intelligence, robotics, networks and sensors, and synthetic biology. Part Two of the book focuses on the Psychology of Bold, drawing on insights from billionaire entrepreneurs Larry Page, Elon Musk, Richard Branson, and Jeff Bezos. In addition, Diamandis reveals his entrepreneurial secrets garnered from building fifteen companies, including such audacious ventures as Singularity University, XPRIZE, Planetary Resources, and Human Longevity, Inc. Finally, Bold closes with a look at the best practices that allow anyone to leverage today's hyper-connected crowd like never before. Here, the authors teach how to design and use incentive competitions, launch million-dollar crowdfunding campaigns to tap into ten's of billions of dollars of capital, and finally how to build communities--armies of exponentially enabled individuals willing and able to help today's entrepreneurs make their boldest dreams come true.
Bold is both a manifesto and a manual. It is today's exponential entrepreneur's go-to resource on the use of emerging technologies, thinking at scale, and the awesome power of crowd-powered tools.


    REVIEW QUOTES
""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
""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
"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
"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
