Review

"I love this book so much. Greatness (!) from real people (!) in the most un-Silicon Valley (!) markets and locations imaginable. Wow!"

--TOM PETERS, coauthor of In Search of Excellence

"A fascinating look inside companies that are rewriting the rules of success. If you've ever wondered whether imagination beats knowledge and passion overcomes ambition, drop what you're doing and read this book."

--ADAM GRANT, Wharton professor, author of Originals and Give and Take

"We've all heard of the garage startup that spawned tech giants like Apple, Amazon, Google. But what about the startup that's actually reinventing the garage? Everyone needs to think and act more like an entrepreneur these days, and Simply Brilliant provides a roadmap for finding inspiration and innovation in the unlikeliest, everyday places."

--LINDA ROTTENBERG, cofounder of Endeavor, author of Crazy Is A Compliment

"Simply Brilliant offers transformative messages for leaders in all walks of life. This book will challenge you to look at yourself, your work, and the world around you with fresh eyes and a more open mind."

--SIR KEN ROBINSON, educator, author of Creative Schools

"Simply Brilliant is a unicorn among business books: A clear and instructive manual for disruption that also happens to be a terrific read. Bill Taylor has defined parameters for innovation that are relevant and actionable whether your goal is to grow a business or cure a disease."

--DEBORAH W. BROOKS, cofounder and executive vice chairman, The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research

"Bill Taylor is back--and he's better than ever! Simply Brilliant describes how to make your organization truly extraordinary by focusing on the values that set you apart from the pack. Brimming with fascinating case studies, this book is essential reading for leaders in every industry."

--DANIEL H. PINK, author of Drive and To Sell Is Human

"Bill Taylor has done it again. This book is going to change your business forever--when you read it, you'll understand."

--SETH GODIN, author of Linchpin
