Jim Cusumano is one of those rare individuals who have been able to reinvent themselves several times, and excel at what they do every time. In Balance: The Business - Life Connection, he shares his secret sauce and offers it in a way that everybody can apply to their own life plan. But this book is not about Jim, it is about the reader! His personal discoveries and wisdom are useful tools to help you live a life filled with happiness and high levels of accomplishment. -- --James C. Blair, PhD Founder/Partner, Domain Associates
Balance: The Business - Life Connection is an unusual title for an unusual book by an unusual man. Jim Cusumano is not the typical scientist, or typical rock star, or typical entrepreneur; my goodness, how would the word 'typical' even apply to these different and rather antithetical professions and skills? He writes in engaging and lively style, sharing with the reader his life's experiences, invaluable lessons from his journey of life. His experiences, such as interacting and learning from the ten 'giants' who influenced him so much, are captivating as well as full of gems. Jim's so many lives give you the impression there are different people within them, each one of them with unique life experiences; his reflections--not dry lessons, but on the contrary alive and full of energy--take you step by step into simple but profound principles of living the right way and enjoying a full life. When you have finished reading Jim's book, you will want to meet him in person. I was lucky to have met him and grateful to cross paths with such an unusual and fun, full-of-life, man. -- --Professor Menas Kafatos Author of The Conscious Universe Dean Schmid College of Science & Technology Chapman University, Orange, California
Reading Balance: The Business - Life Connection reminds me that true Renaissance Men still exist. It is fantastic to experience all of Jim's lives, his love for his family and friends, his passion for learning and growth, and his drive for making the world a better place. The most amazing thing for me is that he so eloquently makes us believe that we can do these miracles as well. Even more so, he gives us a foolproof manual to do exactly so. Now I don't have an excuse not to try. -- --Jan Sykora Chairman of the Board, Wood & Company Prague, Czech Republic
