Wise Guy - Lessons from Tech, Startups, and Silicon Valley


Guy Kawasaki


WISE GUY is the Silicon Valley icon and bestselling author Guy Kawasaki’s unlikely life story, and the lessons we can all take from it. Each anecdote--such as the time Guy was mistaken for Jackie Chan; how he learned when to shut up and when to ask for help; how he discovered the power of other people's success; and how raising four kids influenced his approach to business--is accompanied by a brief "Wisdom" section of practical takeaways. These asides cover everything from values to humility to finding the balance between living well and living responsibly.... and, of course, how to launch and run a great business.
