John David Mann

John David Mann is an award-winning author whose writings have earned the Nautilus Award, the Axiom Business Book Award (Gold Medal), Taiwan's Golden Book Award for Innovation, and the 2017 Living Now Book Awards "Evergreen Medal" for "contribution to positive global change." His books are published in 35 languages and have sold more than 3 million copies. He is coauthor of the international bestseller "The Go-Giver" with Bob Burg, the New York Times bestsellers "The Red Circle" with Brandon Webb and "Flash Foresight" with Daniel Burrus and the national bestsellers "The Slight Edge" (with Jeff Olson), "Among Heroes" (with Brandon Webb), and "Real Leadership" (with John Addison). His "Take the Lead" (with Betsy Myers) was named Best Leadership Book of 2011 by Tom Peters and the Washington Post.

John has been creating careers since he was a teenager. At age 17, he and a few friends started their own high school in Orange, New Jersey called Changes, Inc. Before turning to business and journalism, he forged a successful career as a concert cellist and prize-winning composer. At 15 he was recipient of the 1969 BMI Awards to Student Composers and several New Jersey State grants for composition; his musical compositions were performed throughout the U.S. and his musical score for Aeschylus' "Prometheus Bound" (written at age 13) was performed at the amphitheater in Delphi, Greece, where the play was originally premiered.

His diverse career has made him a thought leader in several different industries. In 1986 John founded and wrote for Solstice, a journal on health, nutrition and environmental issues; his series on the climate crisis (yes, he was writing about this back in the eighties) was selected for national reprint in Utne Reader. In 1992 John edited and produced the underground bestseller "The Greatest Networker in the World" by John Milton Fogg, which became the defining book in its field. During the 1990s, John built a multimillion-dollar sales/distribution organization of over 100,000 people. He was cofounder and senior editor of the legendary journal Upline and editor in chief of Networking Times.

He is married to Ana Gabriel Mann and considers himself the luckiest mann in the world. You can visit him at www.johndavidmann.com.
