Executive producer Mark Burnett has revolutionized television. So how did a British immigrant with little cash and no connections become his own entertainment empire? In Jump In!, Burnett shares his astounding personal saga of risk and reward, and tells enthralling stories about his shows and their contestants that have never before been revealed to the public. After years of facing remarkable challenges--both professional and personal--Burnett knows it's best to trust your gut instincts, recognize what you want, and go for it full-throttle.

Twelve years after writing the introduction to "Jump in!" Donald Trump will be President of the United States of America. DreamWorks a new Hollywood studio. *Chapter 7 Don't sell out, How teammates communicate can mean more than what is verbally said. I want to apply this chapter to my own life.* Never pitch ideas over the phone. Martha Stewart fans will enjoy Mark Burnett's surprising business dealings and visit to her home.
