The Self-Made Billionaire Effect
How Extreme Producers Create Massive Value
by John Sviokla & Mitch Cohen

Portfolio © 2014, 256 pages

Why Billionaires Succeed

It's possible to become a millionaire, thanks to a high-paying job in the right industry. To become self-made billionaires, however, takes something more, write John Sviokla and Mitch Cohen in their fascinating new book The Self-Made Billionaire Effect: How Extreme Producers Create Massive Value. The authors label those who can succeed within the constraints of organizations or established systems, as performers. Billionaires, in contrast, are producers. "They envision something new," the authors explain, “bring together the people and the resources to create it and sell it to customers who didn't know they needed it."
