A veritable icon of Silicon Valley, Kawasaki is the author of 14 books, including staples in the entrepreneur’s library like The Art of the Start. After working with some of the biggest tech companies in the world, including a stint at Apple in the 1980s, this guru of guerilla marketing went on to become the poster of reinvention, solo-prenuership, and a champion of self-branding. Today, he’s a chief evangelist for Canva, an online graphic-design tool, a brand ambassador for Mercedes-Benz, and an executive fellow of the Haas School of Business at UC Berkeley.
In his most revealing book yet, Guy shares personal stories from his childhood in Hawaii, his education at Stanford and UCLA, the ups and downs of working for Steve Jobs, and taking up surfing at 60 — proving that you are never too old to learn something new.
Wise Guy is an utterly original and profoundly intimate look at the power of self-reflection. Always the clear-eyed mentor, Guy invites us all to find the deeper truth in the smallest moments of our life. Join one of Silicon Valley’s biggest stars as he returns to Kepler’s to share the pivotal lessons he’s learned in his 30+ years in the valley — you might just learn a thing or two about surfing along the way!
