The author, a teacher at the Wharton School of Business, has written a book on achieving success. In it he posits the basic premise of his presentation: there is no foolproof system that always leads to success. That said, he nevertheless goes on to unfold a program that rests on two factors: Goal clarification (which means, of course, that a personal definition of success must be arrived at), and resources and initiatives needed to achieve success. In well-ordered chapters, he develops the stages of his program for success, one important feature of which is determining what you do better than most people.
