Summary

Jeopardy is the single greatest catalyst for making things happen in life.

In Jeopardy, award-winning entrepreneur Wilfred Emmanuel-Jones argues that our natural instinct for caution is one of the greatest barriers to making progress in life and shows how embracing jeopardy is essential if you want to succeed.

Drawing on a life that has taken him from a deprived childhood in inner-city Birmingham to becoming one of the nation's most famous farmers, he demonstrates how we can all go further in life by learning to escape the fears that stop us from achieving our ambitions.

Wilfred Emmanuel-Jones is no stranger to jeopardy: he remortgaged his house in 2005 to launch his brand, The Black Farmer, from nothing. Its products are now stocked in all major supermarkets, and the business has an annual turnover of several million.  

In this audiobook, he shows that only by embracing jeopardy and liberating ourselves from the shackles of uncertainty and self-doubt can we realise our full potential.

What could you achieve if you decided to stop letting fear hold you back?

A very inspiring story

I really enjoyed this book. the delivery was at times distracting because it was stilted in places but when you understand that the author accomplished this and so much more with crippling dyslexia you can overlook this somewhat. However it does highlight the craftsmanship of an actor/narrator. This book has a bold and enlightening story and I recommend this to anyone who is contemplating changes in their life. I will try the Black Farmer products too as I am abit late to that party.

Truly inspirational

This book was a perfect introduction to audio books for me. Wifred is so good at reading out his own inspirational words that I listened to the whole book in just two days!
