Intelligent Fanatics are the world’s greatest business builders. They create companies and organizations that dominate and stand the test of time. Charlie Munger was the first person to use the term Intelligent Fanatic. He described them as possessing business talents that allow them to do things that ordinary skilled mortals can’t.

In our new book, Intelligent Fanatics: Standing on the Shoulders of Giants, we highlight nine under-the-radar intelligent fanatics:

    • Clessie Cummins & Irwin Family – Cummins Engine Company [See Preview]
    • Jack Henry & Jerry Hall – Jack Henry & Associates [See Preview]

In each chapter, we tell the story of each intelligent fanatic and contrast their leadership styles and strategies against competitors during the time period. We then expand on our intelligent fanatic model and provide detail so that you, too, can stand on the shoulders of giants to see further.

We want to thank Professor Sanjay Bakshi who wrote the foreword to this book and has been a great inspiration for our research, community, and brand.
