A great book that takes lessons from the team that brought mankind to the moon in 1969. In order to succeed, it is important to have a growth mind-set, especially when you fail and have to deal with it. Setting smart deadlines, being adaptable and embracing fears, will lead you to success. But the main thing is to find a deeper purpose, take breaks and prepare for the unexpected.

An absolutely fascinating look at the psychologies at play that drove US success in putting Man on the moon. Some fantastic practical tips that can be employed during day to day activities. However, if, like me, that space race fascinates you then a great peek under the bonnet of the US space machine. Loved it.
