Former Nintendo of America president and COO Reggie Fils-Aimé has written a book that is one part inspiring autobiography, one part leadership lessons to help readers ascend to the top of the business world: Disrupting the Game: From the Bronx to the Top of Nintendo. There are listings for it up at retailers like Amazon and Barnes & Noble, though Amazon only currently has the digital version available to preorder.
As the book retail listing explains, you will “Learn from Reggie how to leverage disruptive thinking to pinpoint the life choices that will make you truly happy, conquer negative perceptions from those who underestimate or outright dismiss you, and master the grit, perseverance, and resilience it takes to dominate in the business world and to reach your professional dreams.”
To get even more specific about the contents of the book, Reggie will share his perspective on the following areas in Disrupting the Game: From the Bronx to the Top of Nintendo:
- About the challenges Reggie faced throughout his life and career-from his humble childhood as the son of Haitian immigrants, to becoming one of the most powerful names in the history of the gaming industry.
- What it takes to reach the top of your own industry, including being brave enough to stand up for your ideas, while also being open to alternative paths to success.
- How to create vibrant and believable visions for your team and company.
- How to maintain relentless curiosity and know when to ask questions to shatter the status quo.
