5.0 out of 5 stars Bit sized chunks of wisdom and inspiration 5 Dec 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this after having read the first book in the series and have enjoyed this one just as much. Each essay is only two or three pages long so they can be crammed into a busy schedule when you have a couple of minutes downtime. As well as the essays there are also inspirational quotes throughout, and the design and presentation of the book is great too. Recommended.

By Robert Morris TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition
Jocelyn Glei edited this volume to which she and 21 others contributed their "insights on making things happen," as did Scott Belsky, CEO of Behance, who also wrote the Foreword: "You're a Free Radical, Run with It." This is one of the first volumes in the 99U Box Series published by Amazon. Visit the 99U by Behance website and you will encounter this brief explanation: "For too long, the creative world has focused on idea generation at the expense of idea execution. As the legendary inventor Thomas Edison famously said, 'Genius is 1% inspiration, and 99% perspiration.' To truly make great ideas a reality, we must act, experiment, fail, adapt, and learn on a daily basis. 99U is Behance's effort to provide this "missing curriculum" for making ideas happen. Through our Webby Award-winning website, popular events, and bestselling books, we share pragmatic, action-oriented insights from leading researchers and visionary creatives. At 99U, we don't want to give you more ideas--we want to empower you to make good on the ones you've got." It was Edison who also said, "Vision without execution is hallucination." Darrell Royal's observation is even more volume to this book: "potential" means "you ain't done it yet."

The brief but insightful essays are divided within four sections: Creating Opportunities, Building Expertise, Cultivating Relationships, and Taking Risks.
