100 Word Book Review:

The most successful may not always be the smartest or hardest working. A myriad of factors such as culture, family, generation, and the idiosyncratic experiences of their upbringing, where and when were they born. From Asian maths students to the British Beatles, stereotypes can be addressed through different eyes. Gifted or not, most of the time the difference lies in 10,000 hours of training. It helps to understand the winner’s psychology and motivation, along with background behind the drive of success. Everyone can be successful, but not everyone has what it takes. An excellent book for with various case studies.
