Reviews for Moonshots: Creating a World of Abundance

In this debut book, an entrepreneur views intellectual capital as securing the world's future. Jain's enthusiasm for the entrepreneurial mindset permeates a potent volume that is both a futuristic look at innovation and a recipe of sorts for success. The author makes a solid case for the entrepreneur as an imaginative visionary. Jain, a serial entrepreneur, celebrates in particular those magnates who take moonshots, or reach for the impossible. He believes they will emerge as leaders of the new world order, a bold if not wildly audacious prediction. Equally daring are some of Jain's educated guesses as to where entrepreneurial thinking will take readers in 30 to 50 years, examples intended to demonstrate exciting possibilities rather than accurately predict the future. The author waxes poetic about intellectual curiosity, motivation, perception, and wisdom, but none more important than imagination-all elements embodied in the moonshot entrepreneur. As long as you continue to learn, advises the author, you never really fail. The ten takeaways offered at the end of Jain's volume-written with Schroeter (Between the Strings, 2004, etc.)- encapsulate his thoughtful counsel. The prose conveys breathless, almost soaring optimism; the book exudes an infectious passion for the role of the disruptive entrepreneur in meeting the world's challenges. There is so much genuine wisdom in this work that it is hard not to come away impressed with the breadth and depth of Jain's insights. Kirkus Reviews Sept 2018
