Publisher's Summary

Philanthropist, investor, and technology pioneer Jean Case brings to life the five "Be Fearless" principles common to the people and organizations that change the world.

This audiobook is a call to action for those seeking to live extraordinary lives and bring about transformational change.

When National Geographic Chairman Jean Case set out to investigate the core qualities of great change makers, past and present, from inventors to revolutionaries, she found five surprising traits all had in common. They weren’t wealth, privilege, or even genius. It was that all of these exceptional men and women made a big bet, took risks, learned from their failures, reached beyond their bubble, and let urgency conquer fear.

Be Fearless mixes storytelling and strategy, practical tips and inspiration, to teach individuals and organizations how to put these five principles to work so they, too, can spark the sorts of remarkable breakthroughs that change the world.

Most Inspiring Call to Action for Normal People

This book by Ms. Jean Case is exactly the motivation normal people need to take action in their communities and across the globe. The life stories she brings to light are diverse and show how the most critical factor is caring enough to make a difference. Thank you so much....I knew I was missing something to restart my drive to make a difference...now I found the kid inside me again, who said, "I dare you."

The dawn of the New American Dream and its birth to the renowned entrepreneurs and their dedication is very well-prescribed in the book and I am more than happy to meet the author in person at an upcoming Virginia Tech’s Groundbreaking Event for Innovation Campus at Alexandria, VA as an invited Alum!

It's OK

Nothing new, It's interesting the thought that we should push more in trying something new and that nothing comes from being normal.

Several good ideas, no new ideas

The book has several good ideas and suggestions. They are however ideas you will probably have come across if you have read several books - including books on several of the stories discussed.

BE FEARLESS...captures the meet of the book!

I have had the opportunity to hear Jean Case speak on several occasions. I was reading it during a very challenging time in our organization's trajectory. Jean helped me get back to my roots...stay focused on relationships. We slipped into being a transactional organization as opposed to being a relational organization.

Cliches, but some good tips

Like a lot of self help books it has lots of inspiring sentences that make you feel good but appeal to cliche and fluffiness. Some good mind-training tips though!
