Hopping Over the Rabbit Hole chronicles the rise, fall, and resurgence of SkyBridge Capital founder Anthony Scaramucci, giving you a primer on how to thrive in an unpredictable business environment. The sheer number of American success stories has created a false impression that becoming an entrepreneur is a can't-miss endeavor - but nothing could be further from the truth. In the real world, an entrepreneur batting .150 goes directly to the Hall of Fame. Things happen. You make a bad hire, a bad strategic decision, or suffer the consequences of an unforeseen market crash. You can't control what happens to your business, but you can absolutely control how you react, and how you turn bumps in the road into ramps to the sky. Anthony Scaramucci has been there and done that again and again, and has ultimately come out on top. In this audiobook, he shares what he wishes he knew then.
Your chances of becoming an overnight billionaire are approximately the same as your chances of being signed to the NBA. Success is hard work, and anxiety, and tiny hiccups that can turn into disaster with a single misstep. This audiobook shows you how to use adversity to your ultimate advantage, and build the skills you need to respond effectively to the unexpected.
Learn how to deal with unforeseen events
Map a strategic backup plan, and then a backup-backup plan
Train yourself to react in the most productive way

What made the experience of listening to Hopping Over the Rabbit Hole the most enjoyable?
Pretty detailed description and reveals a considerable amount about the author that many wouldnt in the same position most likely.
What other book might you compare Hopping Over the Rabbit Hole to and why?
Its a fairly unique, candid sales and strategy perspective. Some of it is very reminiscent of Harvard Business School course content but in a real world context.
Which scene was your favorite?
Observations regarding human interactions and basically the self destructive nature of infighting/dynamics that shift in multi party conversations/politics later in the book cant be undervalued. He just says it straight up, which I literally havent read it like that even though I've been very aware of the data for many years from several studies among other things and do a considerable amount of diverse reading. They should literally add that to a lower level management course at Harvard. It summarizes something that is that fundamental to human applied behavioral psychology/group dynamics, at least as far as the species currently identified as human currently is, elegantly in 30 seconds in a way people can absorb. It also highlights in the larger context from the book an aspect that practically speaking is undervalued/underutilized in a number of contexts in business considering social media and digital interactions.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
A pretty candid exploration of the business experiences and pivots of Anthony Scaramucci.
Any additional comments?
I didnt expect this book to actually get into that much detail. I was pleasantly surprised. Interesting to read a book about something where a good portion of whats discussed you watched unfold in real time in the course of your own day to day business.

I felt Mr. Scaramucci incorporated stories to help drive home his points. Items of importance were stated multiple times within a chapter.
