Product description


A powerful blend of inspiration and action, Shake the World offers a life-and-career plan handcrafted for the new millennium. Read this book, then head out to set the world on fire. Jonathan Fields, author of "Uncertainty" "At Zappos, one of our core values is to 'Embrace and Drive Change.' This book is for anyone interested in inspiring their own life to change for the better, both personally and professionally!" Tony Hsieh, "NY Times" bestselling author of "Delivering Happiness" "A new generation wants work to be about far more than making money - they want their jobs to make a positive difference to the world. James Marshall Reilly has written a compelling and optimistic first-hand account of what it means to put this excellent goal into practice." Matthew Bishop, New York Bureau Chief of "The Economist" and co-author, "Philanthrocapitalism: How Giving Can Save the World" "Reilly is part of a cohort of young entrepreneurial leaders who will change this country over the next few years. Their fascinating stories and his insights will inspire and guide you as you invent your career and life while making a BIG difference." Peter Sims, author of "Little Bets" and cofounder and director of FUSEcor "Charity: water was founded out of a desire to inspire a new generation of givers to solve the water crisis. In this book, Reilly introduces you to many of our friends who had the fearlessness to break the mold, and think incredibly big. Prepare to be inspired, and then to act!" Scott Harrison, founder and CEO of Charity: Water "In this ever complex, dynamic and demanding world everyone needs to design their lives and James Marshall Reilly shows how. If you want a principled, consequential and successful life, read this book." Don Tapscott author of "Macrowikinomics: Rebooting Business and the World" "This book shifts the mindset for anyone who reads it. Define your own success and then do what the best have already done to achieve it. Reilly has uncovered the secrets of the most hyper successful people of this generation. If you internalize their lessons you will accelerate the rate at which you achieve the success goals you have for yourself." Cameron Herold author, "Double Double" and Former COO 1800GOT JUNK? "Forget triple bottom line companies, James Marshall Reilly documents triple-bottom line individuals-a cadre of brilliant business adventurers devoted to building a better world and-just as importantly- finding a better way to live in that world. With great storytelling and penetrating insight, "Shake the World" adds an entrepreneurial twist to the quest for the meaning of life." Steven Kotler, author of "Abundance, A Small, Furry Prayer" and "West of Jesus""
