BOLD by Peter Diamandis and Steven Kotler Book Review + Insights

Allison Graham

BOLD by Peter Diamandis and Steven Kotler is an excellent book, but I didn’t love it. 

When Diamandis and Kotler talk about being bold and their subtitle, “How to Go Big, Create Wealth and Impact the World” – it’s not really where my lens is. I want to impact the world, yes. But my definition of “Go Big” is not the same as what they're talking about. Their level of Go Big is, ”I'm going to put a billion dollars in new moon project.” I just don’t have any vision or thinking from that perspective.

They also talk a lot about things like crowdsourcing – how you would go about doing that. They also write about innovation, and creating a skunk area which is essentially for a big tech company.

And for the stories, they write stories about Elon Musk’s background (which was fascinating), Jeff Bezos – but it’s all the same people. There weren’t many women in there as examples.

So anyway, if you’re a tech entrepreneur, this book might just be for you. However, for creative people like me who makes content to help people, I didn't love the book – simply because I couldn't relate to it.
