Work

There are few flukes, success does not come easily nor is it overnight.
In pretty much every case there are outside factors that contribute, or else it is dedicated work towards the goal.
If I were a sports coach, I would read and then reread the lessons from the hockey teams- what an edge to assembling a winning team: When is your birthday?

cool cover neat

Some of the concepts were interesting, but it was a bit heavy handed and not very engaging.

Interesting

The information presented was interesting if a little too scientific for me. It did make me rethink our current educational system. The audiobook reinforced the idea of working hard and being in the right place at the right time.
