Bold: How to Go Big, Create Wealth and Impact the World (Exponential Technology Series) Kindle Edition
A radical, how-to guide for using exponential technologies, moonshot thinking, and crowd-powered tools, 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 draws on insights from billionaires such as Larry Page, Elon Musk, Richard Branson, and Jeff Bezos and reveals their entrepreneurial secrets. 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 tens 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.
—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."
"This is a manual for today’s big thinkers to become tomorrow’s bold leaders, using crowd-powered tools accessible to everyone."
"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."
“It makes bold predictions and teaches entrepreneurs how to thrive in the same way as our mammalian ancestors: by being nimble and resilient.”
“The infectious optimism of Bold is inspirational.”
—New York Times "DealBook" Blog

Reading this gave me ideas and inspired me to move forward with my own entrepreneurial endeavours whilst giving me an insight to the great minds of the most exciting and modern powerhouses such as Larry Page, Jeff Bezos and Mark Zuckerberg. The book has a lot of useful advice for upcoming entrepreneurs and people interested in emerging technologies and the use of crowdfunding platforms to enable their visions.
Overall there is a lot useful advice, processes and learnings from two very influential and knowledgable individuals. The price of their insights is worth the money you will pay for the book
