“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. 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.

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.
