Personal Development & Self-Help

The meaning of this wonderfully evocative and rich word, that has no exact translation in English, is elusive. More easily demon-strated than defined?chutzpah envisions those possibilities that no one else yet believes to be viable; a confidence to demand what is due; to break tradition, to challenge authority, and to raise eyebrows. All the inspiring stories in this book feature people who went the extra mile: People, who employed, harnessed, leveraged, embraced, utilized, exploited, adopted and displayed their courage. You can do the same! The heroes and heroines of these chutzpah stories all believed in the art of the impossible. They all chose unconventional routes to achieve their goals. Some of the chutzpah case studies in this book feature household-names like movie-maker Steven Spielberg, cartoon creator Walt Disney, rent-a-car maverick Warren Avis, and bagless vacuum cleaner inventor James Dyson. An ideal gift for someone you would like to see succeed, or for your employees to waken up their chutzpah spirit in slumber, or just for yourself! Table of Contents 1. Introduction 2.
