Summary For generations, we've been taught there are two ways to succeed" talent or practice. Friedman illuminates a powerful third path, one that has quietly launched icons in a wide range of fields, from artists, writers, and chefs, to athletes, inventors, and entrepreneurs: reverse engineering. To reverse engineer is to look beyond what is evident on the surface and find a hidden structure. Here Friedman reveals the staggering power of reverse engineering and teaches you how to harness this vital skill for yourself. -- adapted from jacket
