The Unstoppables is a book about entrepreneurs. Locally, it is about teaching how to become one and mastering secrets to boost any stage business.  Globally, its about how this nation can launch thousands more for the future. Based on co-author Graham Westons experience at Rackspace, from around the business world, as well as fascinating case studies from such people as the Navy SEALs and Israeli Special Forces, The UnStoppables shows how the best practitioners think continuously about two things: The Big Picture and the Little Picture. Essence and essentials. The essentials are the practical mechanics--the business, financial and cultural mechanics that all successful business leaders must learn, either the hard way or the easy way. They apply to everyone, whether youre contemplating a new entrepreneurial endeavor or want to capture the unlimited power of entrepreneurship in an already big company.
