Availability: Ready to download

A groundbreaking book that boldly claims the key to success in business is not talent, connections, or ideas, but the ability to persuade people to take a chance on potential. No one makes it alone. But there’s a reason why some people can get investors or bosses to believe in them while others cannot.

No one makes it alone. But there’s a reason why some people can get investors or bosses to believe in them while others cannot. And that reason has little to do with experience, pedigree or a polished business plan. Backable people seem to have a hidden quality that inspires others to take action. We often chalk this up to natural talent or charisma…either you have “it” or you don’t.    After getting rejected by every investor he pitched, Suneel Gupta had a burning question: could “it” be learned?   Drawing lessons from hundreds of the world’s biggest thinkers, Suneel discovered how to pitch new ideas in a way that has raised millions of dollars, influenced large-scale change inside massive corporations, and even convinced his 8-year old daughter to clean her room. Inside are long-held secrets from producers of Oscar-winning films, members of Congress, military leaders, culinary stars, venture capitalists, founders of unicorn-status startups, and executives at iconic companies like Lego, Method, and Pixar.   Backable reveals how the key to success is not charisma, connections, or even your resume, but rather your ability to persuade others to take a chance on you. This groundbreaking book will show you how.

    Honest, pithy, wise, and short. Sincerely among the best coaching books I could offer to the people in my life pursuing entrepreneurship in any capacity. The beauty is in it’s simplicity and tangible takeaways. I appreciate the author’s humility and willingness to expose the weak links in even a seemingly successful outcome for his startups. Pulling back that curtain demystifies “feast or famine” perceptions people have of entrepreneurial venture. I don’t think I’ve ever read a book with so many Honest, pithy, wise, and short. Sincerely among the best coaching books I could offer to the people in my life pursuing entrepreneurship in any capacity. The beauty is in it’s simplicity and tangible takeaways. I appreciate the author’s humility and willingness to expose the weak links in even a seemingly successful outcome for his startups. Pulling back that curtain demystifies “feast or famine” perceptions people have of entrepreneurial venture. I don’t think I’ve ever read a book with so many one-liners that I’ll be taking away. “It is much easier to prepare for a presentation than a discussion”; “how you get to an idea is just as important as the idea itself.”; We need more high integrity people who can sell a good idea". It’s a great model for a coaching book. Concise, effective, modest, and actionable. Highly recommend for all young professionals and anyone with an entrepreneurial spirit.

    Loved every page of this book. The way he tells insider backstories and pulls together information reminds me of Malcolm Gladwell's style. While reading this book I cried over some stories and laughed out loud at others. I would recommend this book as an essential read for anyone interviewing, reinventing themselves, or developing ideas. Great information and tips for teachers, students, coaches, screenwriters, public speakers, leaders, and salespeople. I could see the next "Hidden Figures" fema Loved every page of this book.

I would recommend this book as an essential read for anyone interviewing, reinventing themselves, or developing ideas. Great information and tips for teachers, students, coaches, screenwriters, public speakers, leaders, and salespeople. I could see the next "Hidden Figures" female overcomes the odds movie coming from this book. I can't wait to share one of the stories from this book at my team's next meeting. My favorite thing was the fresh ideas. Gupta presented a really new take on things that I had never considered before. There are little jewels on every page. My highest compliment to a book is if I want to recommend it to friends. Backable by Gupta, I highly recommend.

    I HIGHLY recommend this book not just for entrepreneurs, but anyone whose job is to earn trust, build consensus, or "sell" their ideas or vision (in other words, pretty much everyone). There are so many great lessons in this book, many of which are counter-intuitive, and they're shared through great stories, empirical evidence and Suneel's own hard-fought lessons.
