Críticas:

Some books on entrepreneurship are of little practical use. Rottenberg's new book is different. Sober, convincing and offers the best ways to build new business ventures ( Financial Times)

Linda has tapped into something important - that we all need to be more entrepreneurial these days. With her impressive track record and inspiring story, she shows us all how to overcome our fears and take smart, achievable steps to improve our organizations. (Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook and founder of LeanIn.Org)

Call me crazy, but I think Linda is onto something big here. She delivers powerful insights with her legendary wit and candor to show how everyone can think and act like an entrepreneur. (Michael Dell, founder and CEO, Dell Inc)

For nearly two decades, Linda has been teaching and learning from the boldest entrepreneurs around the world. In this terrific book, she shares what it takes to master the chaos of starting your own business-or simply to grow your own career in today's fast-changing world of work. (Reid Hoffman, chairman of LinkedIn and coauthor of The Start-Up of You)

Crazy Is a Compliment is a treasure trove. Linda Rottenberg is an extraordinary entrepreneur who has guided many of the world's greatest entrepreneurs, and she offers invaluable insights-not only for startups, but also for companies, nonprofits, governments, and schools. If you have an idea or want to innovate, I highly recommend

devouring this book.

(Adam Grant, author of Give and Take)

Crazy is what they call people who don't fit in. And we need a lot more crazy like Linda is crazy. She is generous, curious, connected, and driven to make a difference in the world. And this book captures all of that and more. Buy it, read it, live it. (Seth Godin, author of Linchpin)

A unique contribution that combines not only remarkable lessons of what it takes to build an enterprise from scratch, but how a global phenomenon of entrepreneurship is solving problems, bottom up, once thought only the domain of top-down government and large institutions (Diplomatic Courier)

Reseña del editor:

In Crazy is a Compliment, Linda Rottenberg shows that when pursuing our dreams, taking smart risks is the only safe option

These days, taking chances isn't just for Silicon Valley college dropouts in hooded sweatshirts. It's the only safe option for any of us, whether we work at Fortune 500 corporations, non-profits, or low-tech small businesses.

But how do you take smart risks without putting too much on the line?

Linda Rottenberg shows what we can all learn from leading innovators to pursue our own big dreams, drawing on research from her company Endeavor, a thriving non-profit that identifies, mentors, and invests in fast-growing small businesses with the potential to transform their communities. Crazy is a Compliment offers a blend of inspiring stories and practical tools for getting started, getting bigger, and maintaining a healthy personal life.

Linda Rottenberg is the CEO and co-founder of Endeavor, a launch pad for entrepreneurs. She has given speeches for TED, Google Zeitgeist, the Clinton Global Initiative and the World Economic Forum in Davos, and has appeared on CNBC, Bloomberg, and CNN. Linda has been profiled by the Wall Street Journal, Forbes and Fortune, among others, and was named among TIME's 100 'Innovators for the 21st Century'.

Maybe you re serving coffee and fantasizing about launching a microbrewery; maybe you ve skipped college and yearn to start your own design firm; maybe you re sitting in your cubicle and brainstorming a new idea that can improve your company. You have a dream, but you don t know how to turn your dream into reality. Or you ve already launched your dream but you re unsure how to take it to the next level. This book can show you the way. These days taking chances isn t just for college dropouts in hoodies; everybody needs to think and act like an entrepreneur.
