About The Book

Much of what we've been told about the qualities that lead to achievement islogical, earnest...and downright wrong. Barking Up the Wrong Tree explodes themyths and looks at the science behind what separates the extremely successfulfrom the rest of us. What it reveals is that success is less about being perfect ina particular quality than knowing what you're best at and being properly alignedwith your context. The thing that sets you apart, the habits you tried to banish,the things you were taunted for in school may grant you an unbeatableadvantage given the proper context.

While we can't all win Olympic Gold or Nobel Prizes, many of the methods thatget people ahead are well within reach. The book will look at what works, whatdoesn't and share insights on how to best navigate the world when we'reunsure. It will also reveal:

Why valedictorians rarely become millionaires, why the best (and worst)US Presidents are the ones who subvert the system, and how yourbiggest weakness might actually be your greatest strength.

How disaster survivors find the will to go on, how Medal of Honor winnerskeep fighting when the odds seem impossible, and how the emerging scienceof "mental contrasting" can help us determine when to go all-in and when tothink twice.

When is the best time to double your efforts, when to throw in thetowel-and when to bluff.

How the most networked employees are often the most productive-butwhy the greatest experts almost invariably classify themselves asintroverts (including an astounding 90% of top athletes.)

Sometimes what produces success is raw talent, sometimes it's the nice thingsmom told you to do and other times it's the exact opposite.
