Assuming you're someone interested in learning and improving - and making a difference - this book was written with you in mind.

Whether you're at the top of the corporate pyramid, or somewhere nearer the base. Whether you're a stay-at-home parent coordinating the endless duties of the family, or an entrepreneur orchestrating a finite amount of time and resources - you're working to make a difference. And yes, your work and what you do matters.

The audiobook contains a culmination of experiences, thoughts, and learning - much of it from world-class innovators and creators. Every single story is true. And every story has relevance to you.

Some common themes will emerge from these stories. Hard work, persistence, courage. Luck is sometimes present. Often, things were learned the hard way. And, as is the case whenever there are innovators and creators involved, there’s also a fair amount of love running rampant through the stories. Evidently, rampant is how love likes to run - especially when it’s heading toward a goal and vision. Perhaps most important, you’ll see that every one of these luminaries are made - not born.

The title, Evolve or Die, is somewhat blunt, and it is an exaggeration. But my belief is that it’s closer to the truth than many people realize. And it’s my genuine hope that this book and the stories within on innovating and creating are of real interest and benefit to you.

It might seem trite to write this, but (in reference to Henry David Thoreau) you weren’t meant to settle for a life of quiet desperation. You’ll need to innovate and create. It’s better to learn from the champions, practice like your life depended on it (to an extent it does), and come out strong and punching above your weight (because you can).

You’ve got a lot to offer this world. We all do. I’m in your corner, offering guidance and cheering for you. Get in the ring, come out swinging, and fight the good fight.

Critic reviews

“Tom Triumph has artfully captured many of the key lessons in the creative process as he shares real-world stories and experiences across the breadth of science, business, and art and provides simple models to make this all actionable. In a world of increasing complexity, this book is a perfect reminder for anyone looking to push their own limits and explore their untapped potential.” (Andy Walshe, performance manager, Red Bull Stratos, program designer for the US Olympic ski and snowboard teams)

“The energy in Evolve or Die is the energy of someone who’s lived life fully and has not lost that glimmer of ‘what is possible’ in individuals. Tom takes that energy and gives readers tools and insights in the manner of sitting down over a cup of joe and going over ‘the important stuff.' The stuff that matters. Why? Because as you’ll discover, YOU matter, more than you possibly know. And this book will help you dial in on that special thing that’s you.” (David Brier, Chief Gravity Defyer, DBD International)

“Tom’s insightful, enthusiastic, positive, and practical outlook on life is reflected in this book, along with his indefatigable message to keep moving forward to become better each day.” (Livingston L. Holder, Jr., co-founder Holder Aerospace, USAF astronaut)

You have a Superpower!!

Did you know that you have a superpower?! Tom will inform you of your superpower and how to properly release it along with steps to take to continually improve and grow. Failure is part of life and this book does an amazing job of highlighting notable failures in the past century. However, more importantly, this book explains how those individuals learned from those failures and became successful after the fact. This book is written in a very conversational tone, filled with many stories, and has dad jokes sprinkled throughout. I urge anyone that is struggling, recent graduates, or career changers to read this book because it is true you either evolve or you die.
