What the Critics Say

“In The Wisdom of Titans, Bill Ferguson brings together a who’s who of entrepreneurs who candidly share lessons learned on their journeys. The book contains important commonalities—passion, focus on the bottom line, growing market share, developing a team—as well as “secret sauce” ingredients unique to each individual. This is a must-read for anyone who is or wants to be a successful entrepreneur.” (Jeffrey Fox, Fox & Company, author of the bestselling The Transformative CEO)
