HASH(0x97f25528) out of 5 stars Be brave to run with your convictions 4 Nov. 2013
By David Physick - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Like a good sandwich, both the filling and the bread need to be the highest quality. If Bill's book DIsrupt! represents the filling, this book about courage represents the bread. To disrupt you need courage, you need the self-determination to hold it all together and to shepherd, guide and cajole others to pick up your lead and make the necessary changes cumulative rather than individual. In that way, courage compounds and we can bring about the disruptions needed in our unbalanced and inequitable world that has been created in the 250 years since the industrial revolution. We now need the courage to bring about the disruption of anothe revolution. Here is the instruction manual!

HASH(0x97f2adf8) out of 5 stars Fascinating read 15 Feb. 2014
By rpv - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I like Bill's book, no nonsense to the point. I read the book on a Kindle DX and one issue is the book is filled with interview links to youtube. They are not click-able. I was able to do through a computer or tablet. The links (like Marissa Mayer link to wikipedia) are accessible.

Back to the book, his quotes are very bold and makes you think. Like choose your parents, first chapter. Even if you get one or two points and implement, it is well worth it. I am reading it to my daughter to inspire and motivate her. The book is not soo short, not too big and can be read in a day. Best is to take notes and implement them!

HASH(0x9805fcc0) out of 5 stars A worthwhile conversation 4 Nov. 2013
By Toni Koskiniemi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Probably the only book I would recommend that you open to page 92 (Disruptor's Personal Development Plan)BEFORE you start anything else. Ever been curious as to what inspired some of the breakout performers in your field? What if you could have a conversation with 100 or so of those people? Bill Jensen has saved you the time and trouble in The Courage Within Us - Profiles In Disruption. What do you have to share with the world (locally, nationally, or globally) that can make a positive difference? If all you were lacking is the courage, this book will provide some good examples (and encouragement) for overcoming any hesitancy.
HASH(0x983d8d20) out of 5 stars A Must Have 5 Mar. 2014
By Dennis Morris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
In "The Courage Within Us" Bill Jensen with wit, humor and deep insights gives us a roadmap to inspiration and results. No small task for any author to accomplish. In a great series of interviews, Bill identifies and magnifies the 7 essential traits of those people willing to be successful, by their own definition, and pulls those lessons from their own personal stories.

The fact that I didn't recognize the majority of them, made the reading even more powerful.
It's always interesting to hear how famous people became famous people, but somehow it all seems distant and unattainable for the rest of us. These interviews bring home the fact that success and satisfaction are not the prevue of the famous few, but are attainable for all of us.

All starting from the same basic question…What makes you…you? The stories yield insights into courage to dare, confidence in one's intuition, investing in yourself in order to invest in others, sharing your unique talents and experience in a way that only you can do, accepting and daring failure. It brings into the light all the obstacles, challenges and long held beliefs each of us have about ourselves…and then blows them up.

If you're looking for the courage to dare, for a roadmap to get you there…this is a must have for your library of well read books. I'll be reading my copy over and over to gain more and more from these interviews. I highly recommend you do the same.
