In the mid-70s, Steve Martin exploded onto the comedy scene. By 1978 he was the biggest concert draw in the history of stand-up. In 1981 he quit forever. Born Standing Up is, in his own words, the story of "why I did stand-up and why I walked away".

Hear stories from the enigmatic people Steve got to meet and work with, how the routines came to be, alongside the inspiring honesty of how much sh*t you have to shovel to get the thing you want...for just a brief moment.

Through the years, I've learned, there is no harm in charging oneself up with delusions between moments of valid inspiration. - Steve Martin

A groundbreaking and paradigm-shifting book, The Speed of Trust challenges our age-old assumption that trust is merely a soft, social virtue and instead demonstrates that trust is a hard-edged, economic driver -- a learnable and measurable skill that makes organizations more profitable, people more promotable, and relationships more energizing.
