Smarter, Faster, Better: The Secrets of Being Productive in Life and Business

What is "productivity," and how does it work? Why are some individuals and some firms seemingly so productive, where others languish? Pulitzer Prize winning author Charles Duhigg criss-crossed the United States talking with neurologists, business people, government leaders, filmmakers, and even poker players, in a quest to understand how to set goals and live up to ambition—no matter how large or small.
