Riot Rundown


Today’s Riot Rundown is sponsored by HarperOne, an Imprint of HarperCollins Publishers.

Much advice about achievement is logical, earnest… and downright wrong. In Barking Up the Wrong Tree, Eric Barker reveals the extraordinary science behind what actually determines success. You’ll learn:

· Why valedictorians rarely become millionaires
· How your biggest weakness might be your greatest strength
· Lessons about cooperation from gangs, pirates, and serial killers

· The Navy SEAL secret to “grit”

· How to find work-life balance from Genghis Khan, Albert Einstein, and Spider-Man

By looking at what separates the extremely successful from the rest of us, we learn how to be more like them—and discover why it’s sometimes good that we aren’t.
