From the Inside Flap

How did Hillary Clinton, Michael Bloomberg, Jeffrey Bezos, David Sedaris, and Macy Gray get where they are today - and how can you get the same edge?
"Success is a collection of insights from more than 400 remarkably successful people in all fields - including business, politics, entertainment, and the arts. Here are quotes and passages from J.K. Rowling and Federico Fellini on getting started, and Steve Jobs and Tiger Woods on passion. Here, too, are George Lucas and Bill Clinton on goals, Katie Couric and George Foreman on competition, and Edmund Hillary and Carly Fiorina on leadership.
The high achievers quoted here share one crucial belief: Success is possible as long as there's passion. If you know where you want to be but not how to get there, use "Success as your guide.

This book reads like a Profiles in Success story. There are

hundreds of bright musings by contemporaries from John Stuart Mill

to Aristotle Onassis to Albert Einstein. John Stuart Mill discussed the interconnectedness of ideas. Aristotle Onassis said that success comes from knowing something that no-one else knows.

In the case of Aristotle Onassis, he purchased fleets of surplus

United States carriers for practically nothing. Then, he turned

around and utilized them to deliver world oil. Albert Einstein

labelled work as "x", play as "y" and silence as "z".

This volume is perfect for students of literature, journalism,

historical buffs and generalists everywhere.

This was a gift from someone. I usually go looking for specific quotes on topics when writing a paper, or giving a speech, and this book is a good compilation of quotes pertaining to achieving success in your life, or as to what constitutes success. This includes sections on topics like competitiveness, aggressiveness, setting up goals, etc. I usually enjoy reading books like these through when I get them so I have an idea of what quotes there are, by whom, and where I can find them. It's a lot easier to find quotes online nowdays, and so I don't need to have books around like this, but it is always a useful reference to have laying around.
