Editorial Reviews

Review

''It's easy to snigger at the swagger, but Calacanis has reason to preen. He hasn't merely survived the bust; he's thrived in it. The qualities that made him annoying to his New York colleagues during the boom -- his abrasive demeanor, his hucksterism, his incessant networking -- serve him well in the postbubble economy.'' --Wired

''And that's the thing about Calacanis. Only a sucker would bet against him.'' --Fast Company

''The sort of person who is frequently described as a character out of a movie.'' --The New Yorker

''Sequoia Capital has funneled millions of dollars to scores of well-connected entrepreneurs, academics, and other people known as scouts. . . .Mr. Calacanis was one of the earliest scouts and ran an online news startup called Inside.com, in which Sequoia had invested.'' --The Wall Street Journal

''Jason would never stab you in the back. He might stab you in the face, though.'' (Douglas Rushkoff)

''Arguably the world's greatest angel investor.'' --(The Twenty Minute VC)

From the Back Cover

Please read this if you want to be rich. 

You just picked up this book and you’re wondering if spending a few bucks on these 288 pages could change your life and make you rich beyond your wildest dreams. I’m the author, Jason, and I was born in Brooklyn to a bartender and a nurse, and I now live in a big house with a bunch of Teslas in the driveway and an ATM balance receipt that makes me smile from ear to ear every time I see it.

In this book, I explain how I did it, without having an MBA or a rich dad, but simply by hustling my way into early-stage tech startups in Silicon Valley. No one thought I would ever make it in this business, and many folks actively tried to stop me, but I’ve now gotten lucky eight times and taken home tens of millions of dollars, and I’m only forty-six years old. I’ve done so well that my plan is to quit the game in the next couple of years, so this playbook is my gift to you. Yep, you:  the mom in the bookstore with screaming kids, the sales executive in the airport exhausted from layovers, or the kid graduating from college wondering, “What now?” 

I hope you will have the audacity to buy this book, read it every year for the next five, make fifty outrageous bets in tech startups, and hit one that goes one hundred or five hundred or even five thousand times your initial investment.

Some of you will put this book down and go back to your predictable lives in the matrix. But I’m guessing more than a few of you will read this book jacket and say, “F— it, I’m going to take my shot!” 

I’m ready. Are you? Let’s get to work.
