Silicon Valley Icon Guy Kawasaki on his new memoir Wise Guy: Lessons from a Life

  • San Francisco USA (map)

Guy Kawasaki has been a fixture in the tech world since he was part of Apple's original Macintosh team in the 1980s. He's widely respected as a source of wisdom about entrepreneurship, venture capital, marketing, and business evangelism, which he's shared in best-selling books such as The Art of the Start and Enchantment. But before all that, he was just a middle-class kid in Hawaii, a grandson of Japanese immigrants, who loved football and got a C+ in 9th grade English. Wise Guy, his most personal audiobook, is about his surprising journey. It's not a traditional memoir but a series of vignettes. He toyed with calling it "Miso Soup for the Soul," because these stories (like those in the Chicken Soup series) reflect a wide range of experiences that have enlightened and inspired him. Guy covers everything from moral values to business skills to parenting. As he writes, "I hope my stories help you live a more joyous, productive, and meaningful life. If Wise Guy succeeds at this, then that's the best story of all.
