This self-help book was written for those who want to "discover and unlock [their] hidden potential." Using his own observations, plus interviews with more than 50 very successful people, Farber discusses those elements necessary for achieving beyond the norm, including: learning from failure; finding your motivation; setting goals; using positive role models; and understanding how your brain learns. For the genre, not exactly new ground, though Farber's points are concise and free of jargon. Also to his credit, he spends substantial space discounting the "myth" of overnight success. Includes quotes and advice from Senator Bill Bradley, Olympian Bruce Jenner, political consultant Mary Matalin, businessman T. Boone Pickens, and many others. Brian McCombie
