"What you will learn from Hopping over the Rabbit Hole is that SkyBridge was teetering and close to failing," says Peter Diamandis, founder and chairman of the X Prize Foundation and New York Times bestselling author, in his foreword to the book. "I often fear reading autobiographical books by entrepreneurs since most sanitize the facts, and forget their failures... You won't find any of that here. While the story hits rock bottom on a number of occasions, both the company and the culture never break—they bounce."
In the book, Scaramucci shares entrepreneurial lessons he learned the hard way. The book draws upon experiences that include founding SkyBridge in 2005 and leading it through the 2008-09 financial crisis to make it a global powerhouse with $12.3 billion in assets under management or advisement (as of July 31, 2016), as well as creating the SkyBridge Alternatives Conference (SALT), now one of the highest-profile events in the global alternative investment community.
"This book captures the essence of the Gladiator spirit with Anthony's own inspiring and profound story of reinventing his business after the financial crises to become the 2011 Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year," says Tony Robbins, New York Times bestselling author, in his introduction to the book. "Anthony is an extraordinary example of what's possible when you won't tolerate failure or excuses within yourself or others involved in your mission."
