Publisher's Summary

An unforgettable portrait of the emerging world's entrepreneurial dynamos, Brilliant, Crazy, Cocky is the story about that top 1% of people who do more to change their worlds through greed and ambition than politicians, NGOs and nonprofits ever can.
This new breed of self-starter is taking local turmoil and turning it into opportunities, making millions, creating thousands of jobs and changing the face of modern entrepreneurship at the same time.
To tell this story, Lacy spent forty weeks traveling through Asia, South America and Africa hunting down the most impressive up-and-comers the developed world has never heard of....yet. The individuals profiled in Brilliant, Crazy, Cocky are distinct products of their own cultures, yet they share that same unmistakable cocktail of delusion, ambition, and brilliance that drove Bill Gates, Fred Smith, Donald Trump, and every other iconic American entrepreneur of the last few decades.

Liked it, didn't love it

Interesting content wise but something about the tone annoyed me. I can't tell if it's the writing of the narrator. Maybe a holier than thou tone. But the story itself is Interesting particularly hearing the stories of individual entrepreneurs and why they have succeeded.
