Available in
all Good Bookstores

The Misfit Economy argues that lessons in creativity, innovation, salesmanship, and entrepreneurship can come from surprising places: pirates, bootleggers, counterfeiters, hustlers, and others working on the margins of business and society.

The Misfit Economy was named a top business book for 2015 by The Telegraph, as part of a list of books “all leaders should read” at the World Economic Forum, and was called “lively and insightful” by The Economist.
