Top Customer Reviews
Instead of the usual rhetoric of going for your dreams, Arthur Wylie talks about a life-wealth plan that consists of vision, planning, execution, marketing, networking and dealing with the unknown.
As Wylie states, risk-taking is like exercising a muscle. If you stop doing it, you will atrophy and feel trapped by your own circumstances.
This book changed my perspective completely. I thought about all the crazy and fearless things I've done. Most of this wild stuff actually worked and made me feel more alive.
From now on, when someone calls my idea crazy, I'll say, "thank you."
Only The Crazy and Fearless Win Big brilliantly, albeit practically, guides you in the direction of taking your ideas off the shelf of your mind. And, it helps you get started with a well developed plan.
This book had all of the neurons firing in my brain. I am a filmmaker (et al) and history enthusiast, so I loved all of the stories of crazy and fearless thinkers throughout time who changed the world. I believe author Arthur Wylie is one of the great business minds of our time. While you learn some of his business secrets and acumen, when you finish the book you will find yourself encouraged, inspired and ready to put your plan into action. You will be ready to be Crazy and Fearless!

This novel opened my eyes to the critical need to take risks, a word that is often daunting and and activity that is so often avoided. Rather than escaping from risk-taking, this books teaches teh values of taking a risk and moving out of ones comfort zone in order to see a great pay-off.
I truly reccomend this novel to all ages and demographics; it is a book that should not be missed. It can help anyone, at any stage in his/her life take an idea and work to impleement it into action!
LOVED READING THIS BOOK!!
im taking note of your advices… wow! i got on my cellphone my curriculum, also my brochure, im working on my 20 secs presentation... and im doing my dofa matrix. (swot in english)
thanks for your advices... just remember:
The Book... In Spanish!
your narrative, methods and advices are more realistic than Kiyosaki. so, in countries in a development way, people will follow your advices because you don’t say: “hey! To make money you need to buy gold...” or, “hey, buy a petroleum field” etc. honestly.. Kiyosaki here is like a fiction caracter. Is hard to follow. only he can do and get what he says in his books.
ps: sorry for my english, it's not my first language.
