Editorial Reviews


Steve Tobak's book gets it right about leadership and all of its challenges. Definitely worth reading.
--MARK V. HURD, CEO of Oracle

Anyone interested in running a company—high-tech or otherwise—needs to read this book. It provides new insights that clearly spell out what it takes to be successful in a competitive world.
--PHILIPPE KAHN, CEO of Fullpower Technologies, Creator of the camera phone

Real insight and clear thinking from Steve—a highly successful business executive, entrepreneur and damn good writer who knows of what he speaks. This is an extraordinary read that no aspiring entrepreneur or business leader should do without.
--JIM McCANN, Founder and CEO of 1-800-FLOWERS.COM

While covering a wide range of topics on entrepreneurism, business building and leadership, Steve will consistently have you challenging your own core beliefs on what it takes to become a successful business leader.
--DOUG MACK, CEO of Fanatics, former CEO of One Kings Lane

Steve’s incisive analysis of today’s “wantrepreneur” craze is a refreshingly honest, well-informed read. This book is spot-on for today’s entrepreneurial climate of amateurs, pretenders, and a troubling dearth of real leaders.
--RICK MYERS, Founder and CEO of Talent Zoo

From the Inside Flap

Leaders Lead. Followers Follow. You Can't Do Both.

Acknowledging the great irony that most of today's inspiring entrepreneurs are following the crowd instead of doing what innovative leaders like Richard Branson, Mark Zuckerberg, and Elon Musk did to become successful, Silicon Valley management consultant Steve Tobak delivers some truth:

Nobody ever made it big by doing what everyone else is doing.

Drawing upon decades of personal experience with hundreds of accomplished entrepreneurs, CEOs, and venture capitalists, Tobak provides a unique perspective on today's technology revolution, exposes popular myths that masquerade as common wisdom and shows you what it takes to become a successful entrepreneur and an exceptional business leaders in today's highly competitive world.
