BARKING UP THE WRONG TREE The Surprising Science Behind Why Everything You Know About Success Is (Mostly) Wrong

by | Read by Roger Wayne

Personal Growth • 9 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

Narrating this fascinating collection of research findings on who is successful and why, Roger Wayne brings the kind of vocal clarity and enthusiasm that an audiobook like this deserves. He sounds relaxed, in complete control of his craft, and engaged without overselling the author's message. Eric Barker explodes many myths we have about success--for example that nice guys and generous people finish last--by offering surprising studies of how people with various behavioral/emotional styles perform with various types of challenges. He shows how conditions like ADHD can help or hurt a person's effectiveness depending on the setting and type of task they're doing and how leaders who did poorly in school often succeed in real life because their creativity is "unfiltered"--they find solutions others don't see.
