"Life for a revolutionary is all about kicking but: 'You have an interesting product, but...' 'I can see where there needs to be a better way, but...''I'd like to help you, but...'"
Guy Kawasaki, former chief evangelist of Apple Computer Inc., and renegade business strategist is back with a "but-kicking" manifesto, Rules for Revolutionaries. Kawasaki inspires world-changing innovation--this time using his battle-tested lessons to help revolutionaries become visionaries. With his trademark irreverence and go-for-broke attitude, Kawasaki lays out the solutions to the challenges that companies must meet to change the world.
Rules for Revolutionaries is divided into three sections:
Create Like a God. This section explains how to create revolutionary products and services. Kawasaki turns the conventional wisdom--which suggests that breakthrough insights appear when you're in the heightened and altered state of sitting in a beanbag chair squirting colleagues with water pistols--on its head. He shows how the key to creating a revolution is analyzing how to approach the problem at hand.
Command Like a King. In order for a revolution to be successful, someone has to take charge and make tough, insightful, and strategic decisions. From breaking down the barriers that prevent product adoption to avoiding "death magnets" (the stupid mistakes just about everyone makes), these are the strategies revolutionaries cannot go without.
Work Like a Slave. Successful revolutions require hard work--lots of hard work. To go from revolutionary to visionary, you'll need to eat like a bird--relentlessly absorbing knowledge about your industry, customers, and competition--and poop like an elephant--spreading the large amount of information and knowledge that you've gained.
Jam-packed with examples that are not just "real world," but real-world-turned-on-its-ear and man-bites-dog in nature, Rules for Revolutionaries presents a grab bag of insights from top innovators such as Apple, Amazon.com, Dell Computer, Hallmark, and Gillette, and a rich store of hands-on experience from the front lines of business revolution. Kawasaki's relentless enthusiasm and verve will empower you, whether you're an entrepreneur, engineer, inventor, manager, or small-business owner, to turn your dreams into reality, your realty into products, and your products into customer magnets.

Guy Kawasaki, former chief evangelist at Apple Computer and an iconoclastic corporate tactician who now works with high-tech startups in Silicon Valley, is back in print with his seventh book: Rules for Revolutionaries: The Capitalist Manifesto for Creating and Marketing New Products and Services. Entertainingly written in collaboration with previous coauthor Michele Moreno, it lays out Kawasaki's decidedly audacious (but personally experienced) strategies for besting the competition and triumphing in today's hypercharged business environment. The book is divided into three sections, whose titles alone epitomize its thrust and tone. The first, "Create Like a God," discusses the way that radical new products and services must really be developed. The second, "Command Like a King," explains why take-charge leaders are truly necessary in order for such developments to succeed. And the third, "Work Like a Slave," focuses on the commitment that is actually required to beat the odds and change the world. A concluding section is filled with entertaining and inspirational quotes on topics like technology, transportation, politics, entertainment, and medicine that show how even some of our era's most successful ideas and people--the telephone, Louis Pasteur, and Yahoo! among them--have prevailed despite the scoffing of naysayers. --Howard RothmanAbout the Author:
