Product Details


‘Olivier does a brilliant job in this book to show you that not to feel well integrated in the old system is a strength, if you know how to play your cards right. And he gives you the proper mindset, and the right tools and strategies so you can thrive while creating your own adventure through life, and become a happy intelligent rebel. I highly recommend this book. Go read it!’
– Robert Greene, author of the New York Times best-seller The 48 Laws of Power and The 33 Strategies of War

‘Some people seem to fit naturally into the “get a degree and get a 9–5 job” world. This book is for the rest of us. For more than a decade, I’ve watched Olivier Roland ask the questions and take the actions that have shaped his iconoclastic (and extraordinarily successful) life. Now with this book he shows us how he’s done it, and how we can do the same.’
– Jeff Walker, #1 New York Times best-selling author of Launch

‘This book is about how to set yourself free from average and live an extraordinary life… whatever that may mean to you. It’s about how to see different, think different and live different. If you’ve ever felt like you were made for more but just didn’t know how to achieve it, read this book and follow Olivier’s advice. He has crafted a life on his terms – and this is his playbook showing you how to do it too!’
– Stu McLaren, co-founder,

‘In his brilliant book, Olivier Roland takes your hand and shows you how to navigate our complex and modern society. Work smarter, not harder, is the key philosophy.

All while minimizing the risks and living your life to the fullest. Enjoy these golden drops of “street-smart” nectar and go change the world.’
– Stig Severinsen, Ph.D., founder, Breatheology, 4 x freediving world champion and explorer

‘Growing up, I always heard this voice talking to me… coaching me… motivating me to ask different questions, take different chances, go in an opposite direction. It was lonely, and people didn’t understand me. I didn’t know what to call it – until I read Olivier’s book. I am an Intelligent Rebel! I only wish I had this amazing context when I was younger, and hope that every young entrepreneur finds their way to this book!’
– Jason Friedman, founder and CEO of CXFormula, and 2 x Inc. 5000 fastest growing company

‘No matter where you are in your life, if you feel like you are in a work-driven rat-race and yet not building much for yourself, read this book. Olivier is proof that you can be so much more than you ever thought possible, whether you graduated from college and followed all the conventional rules or not. His story will inspire you, and the strategies he shares in this book will help you succeed beyond your dreams.’ 
– Ruth Buczynski, Ph.D., licensed psychologist, president and CEO, The National Institute for the Clinical Application of Behavioral Medicine

‘Incredible! I have read many books, but this one is a piece of art. You will read without stopping! It looks big, but when you start reading it becomes small and you want to return again and again. It really shows the way for entrepreneurs who want a business that designs the life they desire. Olivier is the living proof of that life. If you want freedom and a life that is fun and amazing, this book is your bible! Read it NOW!’
– Ricardo Teixeira, #1 reference in digital marketing in Portugal and 2 x world champion of karate

‘I grew up poor, barely graduated high school and was denied admission to every university I applied for. And I became a millionaire before I turned 30… There is no book (or author) that encapsulates my own journey better than this one. A must-read for those who know they haven’t yet lived up to their potential.’
– Dylan Frost, creator of The Wholesale Formula

A riveting instruction manual to boost your intelligence, improve your life, and launch your dream business.’
– Margaret Lynch Raniere, speaker, entrepreneur and best-selling author of Tapping Into Wealth and Unblocked

‘A rebel can be defined as a person who resists convention. When you think about it, there is no way to forge your own path and reach your dreams without resisting convention. Therefore, being a rebel is essential for success in today’s world. In this book, Olivier Roland reveals the map for the extraordinary adventure that is entrepreneurism. Though I wish I had this book when I started, I’m glad to have it now as intelligent rebels never stop sharpening their tools.’
– John Gallagher, founder, LearningHerbs

‘I never wanted to give the best hours, days, and years of my life to some random business. I wanted to use that time to build my own thing and have my own adventures. Olivier’s the guy to show you how to do that.’
– Will Hamilton, founder, Fuzzy Yellow Balls

‘I have had the honor of knowing Oliver for over a decade and he has always lived true to his word. He is proof that the rebel life is possible. In this manual of opportunity he offers us one of the most authentic and honest views that you will not experience elsewhere. This is not your standard off-the-shelf business success book. This is an encyclopedia of success. A detailed instruction set for living a life of learning and freedom. Oliver shows how to create a life of freedom and then actually “live” that life.’
– Rick McFarland, serial entrepreneur and creator of Voice4Net

– Christian Mickelsen, award-winning entrepreneur, best-selling author, humanitarian, and creator of

‘From all those years meeting all sorts of entrepreneurs who leverage the Internet to achieve financial and location freedom (the freedom to live and work from whatever part of the world) I have yet to meet someone who achieved this on a higher level than Olivier. I am glad his knowledge is now available in such a detailed and easy-to-digest way as in this book.’
– Erico Rocha, one of the biggest references in digital marketing in Brazil

‘This book is a gift to the outsiders, a love letter to the rebels who will change the world. Other authors try to tell you how to succeed. But Olivier shows you – because he’s been proving it in his own life, day after day, for decades. Don’t waste another minute on an outdated system’s definition of success. Read this book now and start creating your own future.’
– Shelley Brander, Wall Street Journal best-selling author of Move the Needle

‘Like Olivier, I’m an entrepreneur with a business that grows at a fast pace year after year. Most of what I learned in school is of no use to me today. I have known Olivier for quite a few years, and I know that he does what he says and says what he does. His book is awesome if you want to live life on your own terms. Go read it! Thanks Olivier for the inspiration and for allowing me and others like me to be and belong.’
– Victor Damasio, creator of Grupo Maestria and Vida de Mentor

‘To anyone who has ever felt “there must be more,” this book is a must-read! Olivier Roland is “awake” to what it’s like to live a life of passion, freedom, and purpose. Through his real-life experience as a successful entrepreneur, global citizen, and forward thinker, he gives us a how-to manual for “waking up” and embracing our own Intelligent Rebel within. This book is a relief. I wish I had read it years ago. You will want to give it to everyone you care about.’
– Michelle Falzon, founder, We Are Content and Create Without Burnout

‘If you have an inkling that there could be more to life than “get the best education you can, land a job, do the commute-work-sleep-repeat for 40 years and then maybe have a little fun before you die” – this book is for you. The Way of the Intelligent Rebel is the ultimate guide on how to create and live your own wild, wealthy, and wonderful life adventure. A life where you flourish, add a lot of value to the world, make a lot of money, have a blast, and experience true freedom.’
– Ann Wilson author of The Wealth Chef

‘Since I was a child I always felt different. I always believed there had to be more to life. There had to be another way. Was life really just about working hard at school, going to college, getting a job, working harder, climbing the ladder, and looking forward to having freedom in the future when I would eventually retire. I wanted to make a difference. I wanted to be different and do differently. I wish I had met Olivier and read The Way of the Intelligent Rebel 25 years ago. It would have saved me so much time and money. It would have given me comfort that although I was different, maybe my thinking was right.’
– Des O’Neill, founder, OmniPro, ProfitPro, and

‘For anyone who has ever struggled with not fitting into the workaday world (but wanting to have an impact), with knowing you are meant for more (but not knowing where to find it), with wanting time and money freedom (but not knowing where to start). This book is a guide to living a life without boundaries or borders. Olivier shows you how to take everything that has made you stand apart from the crowd and turn it into what makes you stand out from the crowd. Olivier is a living example, and in this simple (and accessible) guide he gives you the inside track so you can do the same – faster, simpler, easier.’
– Bari Baumgardner, creator of SAGE Event Management

‘This book has the potential to change more lives than any other I have read. The World has changed. It needs new leaders. It needs entrepreneurs. It needs people who don’t just follow the old way of doing things. I have been an entrepreneur, “free” from the corporate world, for 15 years, but I still had so many eye-opening, “aha” moments reading this book. It was like going back to “lifestyle school” and I loved it. This book is about taking action and making it happen, to live a life on your own terms, free and inspired, and I cannot think of a better teacher than Olivier.’
– Ross Bridgeford, founder, and author of The Alkaline Reset Cleanse

The Way of the Intelligent Rebel addresses how to solve your work-life imbalance with methods personalized to work for you. Olivier pulls from both familiar and new narratives with strategies that will help the reader carve out their own adventure in creativity and independence.’
– Roger Farley, founder,
