“'The Radical Leap' is my favorite book of all time. I love it because it showed me something inside myself that was there and made it make sense and helped me harness it. I read the book at least once a year. One thing I never did was share it with anyone else. Your message around 'The Radical Leap Re-Energized' and your commitment to buy a book for a teacher for every book purchased woke me up and made me realize that I should be sharing your message with the people that I am connected to and to my employees/leaders in my company. As such, I started with 20 copies that I have given out as holiday gifts, and there will be more. Thank you for your perspective and for inspiring me.”
