9780375425899: Success: Advice for Achieving Your Goals from Remarkably Accomplished People

How did Hillary Clinton, Michael Bloomberg, Jeffrey Bezos, and David Sedaris 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.

About the Author:

Jena Pincott writes about the quirky, hidden side of science -- the shocking, subconscious, under-the-radar stuff. She is the author of Do Chocolate Lovers Have Sweeter Babies? Exploring the Surprising Science of Pregnancy, which received starred reviews from Kirkus and Library Journal. Her previous book, Do Gentlemen Really Prefer Blondes? is about the science of love and attraction. Translated in 17 languages, the book received a starred review in Publishers Weekly. Her writing and interviews have appeared in the Wall Street Journal, Newsweek, Redbook, and other publications.

Jena has a background in biology. Formerly a senior editor at Random House, she blogs at Psychology Today and Huffington Post. Jena's other books run the gamut from self-help and motivation (Healing and the bestselling Success) to science, technology, and history (Technomanifestos, Making the Cisco Connection). She also writes science fiction.

Jena lives in New York City with her husband, Peter, and baby daughter.
