One of the best thought-provoking and thought-changing books I've read. It came at the right time as I had a work related issue that needed to be dealt with. I highly recommend this book to everyone, including teenagers.
I was glad to see that I've already learned some of the concepts myself over the past years but this book was still able to offer not just explanations of why those make someone successful (or lucky) but also still had new ways of thinking that I could apply to my life.
