“A lively and inspiring guidebook for anyone who wants to make the jump from normal to extraordinary.”
―Tony Robbins, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Unshakeable and MONEY: Master the Game

An inspirational book that lays out the “Jump Curve”―four steps to wholeheartedly pursuing the career of your dreams―through experiences from a variety of people who have jumped and never looked back

When Mike Lewis was twenty-four and working in a prestigious corporate job, he eagerly wanted to leave and pursue his dream of becoming a professional squash player. But he had questions: When is the right time to move from work that is comfortable to a career you have only dared to dream of? How have other people made such a jump? What did they feel when making that jump―and afterward?

Mike sought guidance from others who had “jumped,” and the responses he got―from a banker who started a brewery, a publicist who became a Bishop, a garbage collector who became a furniture designer, and on and on―were so clear-eyed and inspiring that Mike wanted to share what he had learned with others who might be helped by those stories. First, though, he started playing squash professionally.

The right book at the right time, When to Jump offers more than forty heartening stories (from the founder of Bonobos, the author of The Big Short, the designer of the Lyft logo, the Humans of New York creator, and many more) and takeaways that will inspire, instruct, and reassure, including the ingenious four-phase Jump Curve.

A pragmatic guide to following your dreams Ever wonder about a different life? One in which you pursue that dream, project, or calling that’s been in the back of your head for years? It’s fun to fantasize and dream about, but how do you turn that into reality?

Excellent for both inspiration and entertainment from the fantastic stories I’ve been following When to Jump through the Huffington Post, a few of their meet-ups, and various social media channels for some time now. This book ties everything that I’ve loved about the movement into one fantastic package. The stories are all crisp, entertaining, and varied making them quite easy to get through. Unlike most self-help books, the author really builds momentum through the story, and you don’t feel as if you accomplished everything in the first 10 pages. Whether you are…

Been thinking about making a substantial career change and facing uncertainty and self-doubt? This is the book for you. When people start companies or organizations, from the outside it seems like a nice, clean, ordered process. What that hides is the messiness and self-doubt that’s going through that person’s head. When to Jump is an incredible look inside the thought process and progression of people making substantial changes in their careers and lives. It gives a framework around how to think about and make those changes, and inspiring stories to get you moving.
