We read or hear of highly successful people every day in the news. Now Scott Smith puts together examples of these individuals which identifies what they did to receive their recognition. They range from Information Technology and Entertainment to Politicians and Athletes. The interesting thing is they are not that much different from every day individuals like you and me. They basically had the imagination, courage, creativity and adaptability to achieve their goals in life. JimO
