3. Description this book "Reilly s profound message will lead you and me and everyone to richer lives. -Geoff Colvin, author of "Talent Is Overrated" James Marshall Reilly set out to capture the insights of today s brightest business and nonprofit leaders. This book will light your path to greatness if you too want to shake the world.

James Marshall Reilly set out to capture the insights of today's brightest business and nonprofit leaders. He conducted in-depth interviews with Tony Hsieh (Zappos), Blake Mycoskie (TOMS), Shawn Fanning (Napster, Rupture, Path), and Jessica Jackley (Kiva, ProFounder), among many others. And he learned that despite their different fields, they're all using similar tools to seize opportunities and redefine success. Embracing a shift in generational values, these young people share a passion for driving powerful global change while creating sustainable organizations that often blur the old boundaries between business and philanthropy.

To really "make it" these days, according to Reilly, you need to break the old corporate mold, ignore the "rules," and create your own opportunities. The true game changers are the men and women starting their own businesses, inventing jobs that didn't previously exist, and committing themselves fully to attaining astonishing success, however individually defined.

Shake the World reveals the meteoric rise (and the occasional stumbles) of a new generation of business leaders. Reilly brings their stories to life and, along the way, offers clear lessons that you can apply to your own pursuits. For example, you'll learn firsthand how:

Doug Ulman followed his passions to become CEO of LIVESTRONG. Blake Mycoskie of TOMS responded to ordinary events in an extraordinary way and created a sustainable organization that changed the face of giving and the lives of millions. Bobby Chang used counterintuitive thinking to build the global brand Incase and applies the same techniques to problem solving in everyday life. Jessica Jackley of Kiva and ProFounder harnessed technology in unprecedented ways to build a powerful network and enact palpable, transformational change. Elizabeth Gore took a small risk during college that altered the trajectory of her life and ultimately led her to become the executive director of global partnerships at the UN Foundation.

The role models in Shake the World define themselves not by money and title but by fulfillment and happiness. This book will light your path to greatness if you too want to shake the world. This is not just a book about finding a job. It's a book about creating an inspired life.

James Marshall Reilly's passion to actually shake the world shows others a deeper understanding of how we all can reach out and not only inspire change but become part of the change. James is inspiring people from where they are to become champions of first their dreams then how to turn back and pull forward and lift up those who can't. His new company "The Guild Agency" is a product of his heart and skill set. He is determined to find all who inspire in not only their words but their deeds and share them with the world hopefully giving them tools to support and inspiration to take action. I have also met Mr. James Marshall Reilly and he is a pleasure to hear and walks his talk. He has created a inspirational life for himself and boldly goes forth to present others most often shifting our world unknown and lighting their paths for us to learn and morph into leaders of inspirational innovations ourselves.......

Let's wake up and shake the world because we can.

I was more than lucky to get my hands on an advance copy of Shake The World. Since, I have made it my priority to be a mobile advocate for this great work of art. Why? As a renaissance thinker myself, it was one of the most refreshing books I have had the privilege of reading in a long time. I picked it up and literally couldn't put it down until I had read it cover to cover. Mr. Reilly has the unique ability to connect the dots between game-changers across several different backgrounds, interests, and professions.

The book is built on a vibe. It's tied to experience, education, and everything in between. It communicates an intangible commodity capable of mirroring a profound message through creative works. I have been thrown into a media medium mayhem; everything from what to wear, where to go, and what to think. We essentially "learn" so much about the world from others that we forget to experience it for ourselves.

An example of the centralized message: If you incorporate your passions with an inclination to be a disruptive force, it is very possible to open your own windows of opportunity. There is nothing I respect more than the value of experience and the power of knowledge. Shake The World reaffirms my belief that learning to cope with failure, appreciating life, and being persistent and determined are imperative for one's success. Time is relative, flexible, and unpredictable. It's ok to enjoy the stepping-stones toward progress, even if we don't know where they lead. They are the blessings in disguise that allow us all to continue on our journey of self-discovery.

If you do anything else this year, buy this book.

James Marshall Reilly may have intended to talk to 21 year olds but his book should be purchased by everyone 45+. We all are reassessing the meaning of work and the purpose of our education these days. The old model of preparing for college, spending tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars attending school, and then settling into a career to make it work are dead. Although Reilly is addressing the concerns of young adults about to enter a broken system his message is also a beacon to the millions of displaced 40, 50, and 60 year olds who are clinging to the fringe of the broken decaying system.

At it's essence the book is about the fundamental need to continually to learn and reinvent oneself to add value and be economically relevant. Reilly acts as a cheerleader or perhaps workout buddy, encouraging us to push a little harder to get where we want to be. I'd encourage James to write book #2 based on interviews with successful 45+ somethings who've made the switch to the new economy. Until he does I'll ask my generation to take a big deep cleansing breath and then sit down and read this book.
