“Smartcuts: How Hackers, Innovators, and Icons Accelerate Success”

Shane Snow’s recently published book highlights some of history’s overnight success stories and illuminates the kind of “smartcuts” those individuals took to expedite their growth and progress.

The book, “Smartcuts: How Hackers, Innovators, and Icons Accelerate Success,” largely challenges business convention as it illustrates how innovators have used lateral thinking (smartcuts) to achieve their goals more efficiently and effectively.

Snow, a New York City-based journalist and web entrepreneur, details nine patterns of lateral thinking that he asserts anyone can use in any aspect of their life they aim to improve – “at work, at the gym, in the arts or education, from social enterprise to personal development, from big companies to small startups.”

Pointing to some of history’s high-profile overachievers as key examples, he asserts that, “the fastest route to success is never traditional, and that the conventions we grow up with can be hacked.”

“Smartcuts” is available on www.800ceoread.com for $21.59.
