As someone who grew up alongside Reggie's tenure at Nintendo and benefitted from many of his decisions, I was thrilled to read a book about his life and career. Each chapter ends with a "So What" to wrap up why he told us the story we just heard, which has big dad energy, but also was a great wrap-up of the lesson he learned and wanted to impart to you. This is the perfect read for someone aspiring to be a good people manager, standing for what you believe in, and owning big moves in your career.

Reggie Fils-Aim , retired President and Chief Operating Officer of Nintendo of America Inc., shares leadership lessons and inspiring stories from his unlikely rise to the top.

Although he's best known as Nintendo's iconic President of the Americas-immortalized for opening Nintendo's 2004 E3 presentation with, "My name is Reggie, I'm about kicking ass, I'm about taking names, and we're about making games"-Reggie Fils-Aim 's story is the ultimate gameplan for anyone looking to beat the odds and achieve success.

Learn from Reggie how to leverage disruptive thinking to pinpoint the life choices that will make you truly happy, conquer negative perceptions from those who underestimate or outright dismiss you, and master the grit, perseverance, and resilience it takes to dominate in the business world and to reach your professional dreams.

As close to sitting one-on-one with the gaming legend as it gets, you will learn:

  • About the challenges Reggie faced throughout his life and career-from his humble childhood as the son of Haitian immigrants, to becoming one of the most powerful names in the history of the gaming industry.
  • What it takes to reach the top of your own industry, including being brave enough to stand up for your ideas, while also being open to alternative paths to success.
  • How to create vibrant and believable visions for your team and company.
  • How to maintain relentless curiosity and know when to ask questions to shatter the status quo.
