In Barking Up the Wrong Tree, Eric Barker reveals the extraordinary science behind what actually determines success and most importantly, how anyone can achieve it. By looking at what separates the extremely successful from the rest of us, we learn what we can do to be more like them—and find out in some cases why it’s good that we aren’t. Barking Up the Wrong Tree draws on startling statistics and surprising anecdotes to help you understand what works and what doesn’t so you can stop guessing at success and start living the life you want.

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.
