A word from the author
“This book will help you move the needle in your life. Everyone can unlock the power of failing your way to success, being insecure about what you don’t know, and embracing the ‘you point of view.’ If you are a big thinker who realizes you are capable of more, I wrote this for you.”
James M. Sweeney
In the news
In a special report on health care and technology, The Economist wrote, “For several decades now, visionaries have tried to shift the medical model from expensive hospital interventions for sick people to cheaper preventive care at home…Most of these ideas have failed. James Sweeney is one of the few entrepreneurs to have achieved commercial success, not once but half a dozen times, with businesses selling personal medical devices.”
As the closest major newspaper to many of his companies, the LA Times covered James Sweeney’s companies and quoted him throughout his career in a positive way.
