Yes mate I have. It's a pretty good book, it starts off really strong and fades off a bit. Also nothing new from Malcom Gladwells Outliers book. But some really great stories and easy to read also. You'd like it, give it a read.

I've read this book. I found it very interesting and it made sense to me. I'm going to find some more books similar to this I think.

The man in the video link is great gregs :) I think Syed based a lot from him... he has a book out to, called The Story of Success. Perfect name ha
