Intelligent Fanatics are the world's greatest business builders. They create companies and organizations that dominate and stand the test of time. Charlie Munger was the first person to use the term Intelligent Fanatic. He described them as possessing business talents that allow them to do things that ordinary skilled mortals can't.
In our second book, we pick up where our first book Intelligent Fanatics Project left off. We help you accumulate and internalize the experiences of nine more, relatively unknown, intelligent fanatic giants. We also contrast their leadership styles against less successful companies during the time period. The intelligent fanatic blueprint holds true across every time period, continent, and industry.
You can receive wisdom in two primary ways. The first way is to learn from personal experience and your own mistakes. The second way is to learn from the successes and failures of others. Sir Isaac Newton said it best, "If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants."
Our goal is to help you see further. With the right amount of effort and creativity you too will have the ability to keep up with the fast "tempo" of business, adapt with the quickly changing "harmony," or moving trends, and make it all look effortless.
