In this book, James introduces you to to many of our friends who had the fearlessness to break the mold, and think incredibly big. Prepare to be inspired, and then to act!” —Scott Harrison, founder and ceo of charity: water

“While the business establishment has spent the past three years gnawing at its fingernails, America’s entrepreneurial class, especially those young and gifted with technological skills, has been on a spree…dunking these ideas in worldliness is like telling a six-year-old he cannot be an astronaut. Reilly is right to talk of the need continually to learn and reinvent oneself to keep up with the economy…after watching an older generation make such a hash of things, why not?”Financial Times

“For anyone looking for a present for an anxious 21-year-old, Reilly’s book ‘Shake the World: It’s Not About Finding a Job, It’s about Creating a Life’ is it. Just don’t be surprised if they then ditch their plans to take a job in accounting, head off to dig irrigation ditches in Haiti, tweet the results and apply for the next round of TED (technology, entertainment, design) fellowships.” Los Angeles Times

“It’s an eye-opening book ‘not about finding a job, but about creating a life’ that all high school and college kids should read to help them think outside the last-century box in this new millennium.” New York Daily News

“…Studded with inspirational gems.”Kirkus

“Forget triple bottom line companies. James Marshall Reilly documents triple bottom line individuals—a cadre of brilliant business adventurers devoted to building a better world and, just as important, finding a better way to live in that world.

Reilly has uncovered the secrets of the most hyper successful people of this generation. If you internalize their lessons you will accelerate the rate at which you achieve the success goals you have for yourself.”  —Cameron Herold, Former COO 1-800-GOT-JUNK?; Author of Double Double

“This is the Ultimate Enterpreneurial Young Dogs Book…Reilly is eloquent as no one else about the existential crisis of (Western) youth today…Uplifitingly Cool!” —Science of the Time
