Imagine meeting more than 300 people who've made a profound difference: not for weeks or months, but for decades. Imagine discovering what they've got in common, distilling it into a set of simple practices, and using them to transform your life. You've just imagined Success Built to Last. The culmination of the world's most thorough research project on lifelong success, this book draws on in-person conversations with hundreds of the world's most remarkable human beings. Authored by three legends in leadership and self-help, including Built to Last co-author Jerry Porras, it challenges conventional wisdom at every step. You'll meet world-renowned leaders like Nelson Mandela and Charles Schwab but you'll also meet unsung heroes who've achieved lasting greatness without obvious power or charisma. Famous or not, they all started out ordinary. You'll discover how they learned how to "harvest" their strengths and their weaknesses, their victories and their surprising failures. You'll learn how they found meaning, and the courage to follow their passions. Above all, you'll see how they've sustained success, while others had 15 minutes of fame and faded into oblivion or disappointment. If you're a leader, this book is your true prequel to Built to Last: your personal foundation for building organizations that stay great. Whatever your goals, it will help you magnify your lifetime impact and gain the deep fulfillment of a life well lived.
