Editorial Reviews

Review

Faith Popcorn Chip Conley beautifully explains the importance of the new breed of entre/intra-preneur. The Rebel Rules gives us each the opportunity to explore and put into action the rebel within us.

Seth Godin author of Permission Marketing The Rebel Rules is more than just an inspirational handbook for the new generation of leaders -- it's essential reading for anyone who really wants to make a difference. The future belongs to the rebels who can take the principles in this book and run with them.

About the Author

Veteran CEO Chip Conley has created more boutique hotels than anyone in the world. Founder of Joie de Vivre Hospitality, which he grew into America’s second largest boutique hotel company, he speaks around the world on how to find meaning at the intersection of business and psychology. The author of several books, including Peak: How Great Companies Get Their Mojo from Maslow, he was named the Most Innovative CEO in the San Francisco Bay Area, which he calls home. For more information, visit EmotionalEquations.com and ChipConley.com.

More About the Author

At age 26, Chip Conley started out as a rebel entrepreneur, building one of America's most successful boutique hotel brands, Joie de Vivre. As the company's leader for 24 years, Chip was honored as the "Most Innovative CEO in the Bay Area" by the San Francisco Business Times in 2007 and JdV was named the "2nd Best Place to Work in the Bay Area" in 2008. He is the author of three books including the bestseller PEAK: How Great Companies Get Their Mojo from Maslow, where he illustrates how he created an enlightened business model focused on his employees', customers', and investors' highest needs.

One of the world's leading practitioners of emotional intelligence in business, Chip has shared his philosophy from the main stage at TED, to the creative studios at PIXAR, to the country's top academic institutions -- challenging today's leaders to count what really matters in business and in life. No longer a Chief "Executive" Officer, Chip is now a Chief "Emotions" Officer and in his new book, EMOTIONAL EQUATIONS: Simple Truths for Creating Happiness + Success (January 2012, Free Press), he explains how being proficient in both psychology and business is the smartest means of being successful as a 21st century leader.

Rarely have I read a business book that feels real. Most are written by consultants trying to hawk their services or ego-fed execs at the twilight of their career. This book is different as it has an "in-the-trenches" feeling to it. The first few chapters are a little heavy on the inspiration, but you start picking up great little nuggets of management tools and strategies before the end of the 3rd chapter. My favorite 2 sections were in the "Building a Rebel Reputation in the World", the sections on empowered customer service and creating brand and buzz. I've experienced Chip Conley's Joie de Vivre businesses and now I know some of his secrets to success. This book is as good as Paul Hawken's "Growing a Business" but more contemporary, hip, and fun.

Format: Paperback
This is a book that would deserve much more attention by media and readers than it has gotten since it was published in 2001. The reason for this?

It is quite simple; the book goes to the core of a key issue: succeeding in what you do with your professional life while being yourself.

Too many times we seem to be bound to live a life in which compromises are unavoidable in order to make it in our work: there is a "system" and we need to rapidly understand it and find ways to fit in even if this fitting in does not bring to us much pleasure nor pride.

Chip Conley is a successful entrepreneur in the hospitality and entertainment business. He has found success by being a rebel according to his definition of the concept: expressing the best of yourself in order to create value and not caring too much about what the rules of the "system" and "standard practices" are. From his perspective being a rebel does not mean to simply systematically fight what is conventional, it means to find out who you really are and put your talents and ideas to work in order to generate concrete value added within ever changing market dynamics. He also points out that "the rebels who make a difference in the long run are those with integrity" and Conley defines integrity in a very practical way "knowing what to do, saying you are doing it and then doing it".

Vision, passion, instincts and agility (and their balancing act)

Vision, passion, instincts and agility: these are the four key aptitudes that any rebel should discover within, cultivate with method and express in a determined yet balanced and resourceful way. Conley summarizes the concept with an image: your eyes fuel the vision; your hearth the passion; your gut the instincts and your feet the agility.

Format: Paperback
This book was a great inspiration for an entrepreneur embarking on her own business. Chip goes from big picture analysis of the rebel's place in the business world to specific business practices for the rebel entrepreneur.
The Rebel Rules helps you to explore yourself and your own role in business as well as those of your employees. By using real life examples from his own hospitality company and those of other well-known "rebels", Chip demonstrates how passion, vision, agility, and instinct can carry you far. It's not just self-help babble... he actually uses concrete examples and excercises to use for yourself and for growth and development in your company.
This is a book that I will read and re-read... it's business practices and inspiration are timeless and can be refered to over and over again.

I really liked this book! It's full of lessons, not only for "rebels", or wannabes, but for virtually every business person. I love the way the author provides practical applications, useful processes, and compelling dialog to map out his fascinating road to success. Mr. Conley not only describes his accomplishments along the way, but allows us to learn and benefit from his pot holes and pitfalls as well. Thank God for that.
The book also includes a "Rebel Hall of Fame" with interesting examples and lessons from mega-stars like Ted Turner, Herb Kelleher, and Michael Dell. Virtually every page contains irresistible ideas that any business owner, manager, or entrepreneur could utilize -- rebel or not. How could you not be captivated by headings like "Creating a Diversity Audit - without Alerting the Politically Correct Police" "Becoming a Magnet for Good People", and "How to Interview Your Potential Employer"?
Additionally, The Rebel Rules is full of gold nuggets, useful tools, and easy to follow "how-to" lists that entertain, intrigue, and enlighten. Whether a three-person dot.com start-up or a Microsoft-type giant, I believe any company could benefit from this book. Clearly, Chip Conley has incredible passion for his business and I'm glad he's sharing his magic with the world. Like I said before, "I really liked this book!"
