Overview

Hundreds of years from now, anthropologists will puzzle: twenty-first century humans lived in some of the wealthiest societies in history, yet only a minority of us, around a third, reported being happy. Why? One big problem is that so many of us feel trapped, playing a part rather than being our true selves; pursuing an expected path to success, which is supposed to bring happiness but that doesn’t actually excite us or nurture our souls. 

 Is this you? Perhaps you feel out of your natural element much of the time, undervalued, or left behind. Maybe you long to break free and stop following the herd.

 Let’s face it, though. We live in a white-sheep world, and that’s where Peter Sims initially found himself, working inside the capital markets of London. As “just another suit chasing the next sip of sugar water” in the hamster wheel of life, Sims and his colleagues wondered if there’s a better life on the other side?

 Turns out, the black sheep were everywhere, doing things differently—starting with living life. 

 If the thought of freeing your inner child exhilarates you, we invite you to crack open this book. If you yearn to dance to your own music, read on. If the idea of black sheep reinventing the world from the ground up excites you, join Peter as he shares his deeply personal journey and the development of the Black Sheep movement

About the Author

Peter Eagle Sims is a best-selling author and the Founder & CEO of Black Sheep (BLK SHP). After working as an investor in venture capital with Summit Partners in London, Sims became an accidental author, as the co-author of True North, the best-seller that has been selected as one of the top 25 leadership books of all-time. After that, he stumbled into Stanford’s Institute of Design and learned product design and design thinking, an experience that helped Peter view himself as a creative for the first time, so he dedicated himself to writing his second book, Little Bets, for all those with untapped creativity. A top resource for innovators, it was selected as one of the six best advice books for entrepreneurs by the Wall Street Journal.

Sims has been an advisor at X, Google's semi-secret innovation laboratory. Previously, he co-founded FUSE corps and was part of the initial team of collaborators that started Giving Tuesday, the global philanthropic movement that raised roughly $10 billion in over 100 countries for social causes. He is a graduate of Bowdoin College and Stanford Business School. In all that he does, Peter feels most at home as a creative entrepreneur and innovator, contributing to making the world a bit more human.
