My buddy, Steve Farber, has been at it again. He's recently re-released his first two books, Radical Leap and Radical Edge, into a single book: The Radical Leap Re-Energized - Doing what you love in the service of those who love what you do.
The basic content of both books is still there. Farber's writing is unparallelled. Even if you are not a fan of the "business fable" genre, I double-dog dare you to read Farber's stuff and not be a changed person by the time you reach the last page.
I've been using Farber's books in my class for almost five years. I can honestly state first-hand that after 17 years of adjunct instructing, no other author has had as much of a real impact on my students than Farber. I've taught Farber to approximately 200 students, and here are some of the RESULTS:
- Approximately 1/3 of the students have switched employers (or in some cases, switched career paths altogether) because they were totally convicted by Farber's message
- At least 15% of all my students who have read Farber found the courage to relocate to a different city/state so they can "do what they love in the service of those who love what they do"
- Virtually all of my students have described Farber's work as "life-changing" in some way
As for me? I completely believe in the message in this book. I probably wouldn't be doing what I'm doing now without the Love-Energy-Audacity-Proof formula it takes to change the world... or at least my small corner of it.
As you are making plans and resolutions for 2012, add Farber to your list. It may be just the thing to create a New Year where YOU can change the world.
