really liked it
bookshelves: non-fiction, audiobook
Read in October, 2011

Nice work on a unifying thesis about career achievement based on opportunity and temporary windows of opportunity.

Many examples, nice vignettes but very little actual/ factual data.

A remarkable exception is a report with the proportion of the richest men in the world who, in 1928, were born at the same time.
