Publisher's Summary

There is a strand of genius in each and every one of us. There is a song inside everybody's heart that the world has never had a chance to listen to and maybe, if nothing is done, will never get to be heard altogether. That is what the world sadly loses every single day when people accept the conditions they are living in by choosing not to lend an ear to the springs of ideas that incessantly visit them. Why have we allowed mediocrity to rule over us? Why don't we question the systems that brought these misgivings to our lives? Why have we given up?

They said experience is the best teacher, but today I profess that a wise son learns from the lives of those who came before him. Looking back at the men and women who built the foundations of what we see, looking at their challenges and travails, we get to appreciate that there is more to what we already have and know. Many have fought for their freedom, many have fought for ideas we presently enjoy, and many might have supported the course of change through the efforts that they could afford. All in all, they have brazenly shown us that though there was a price they paid for what they advocated for, it is possible at the end of the day to achieve them.

Originals is here as an ally, an enemy, a thought provoker, a calming salve, and, most of all, an inspirer devoted to challenging your beliefs, your truths and mixing them up with real stories, all in an effort to exfoliate the nasty crust you are wearing and release the adornment being hidden.

Here is a preview of what you'll learn:

Creative Destruction,
Blind Inventors and One-Eyed Investors,
Out on a Limb,
Goldilocks and the Trojan Horse,
Rebel with a Cause,
Rethinking Groupthink,
Rocking the Boat and Keeping it Steady,
The Book at a Glance,
Conclusion,
Final Thoughts,
Now What?,
Bonus.
