Another great book I just finished. It falls in line with Damn Good Advice and Steal Like an Artist. Check this one out because:
“Risks are a measure of people. People who won’t take them are trying to preserve what they have. People who do take them often end up having more.

Being wrong isn’t in the future, or in the past.
Being wrong isn’t anywhere but being here.
Best place to be, eh?”
