It is not native intelligence or natural talent that makes people excel, say Linda Kaplan Thaler and Robin Koval--it's old-fashioned sweat equity and hard work. And that claim is backed up by new research from MacArthur Fellowship Award winner and University of Pennsylvania psychologist Angela Duckworth, among others. Not everyone is blessed with exceptional intelligence, or wins the gene lottery. But the good news is that you can excel beyond your wildest dreams in your career and your personal life--success is within your grasp--through the right attitude and determination.

"Meredith Mitchell's understated narration is perfect for delivering the career advice and extraordinary achievements of these energetic advertising executives. She lets their message and life stories unfold without any hint of self-promotion, which helps listeners discover at their own pace the lessons offered by the authors' perseverance and work ethic. Conveying the confidence Thaler and Koval gained by setting big goals and never giving up, Mitchell's performance will awaken possibilities that listeners may be overlooking. The audio's message is that abilities and social contexts are never as important as our determination to express our talents wherever we find ourselves. Well-written advice illustrated with moving examples of celebrity achievers reminds us that perseverance and passion can be developed in all of us if we want something badly enough.
