Description



Book Synopsis



Serial entrepreneur and journalist Shane Snow delves into the reasons why some people and organizations are able to achieve incredible things in implausibly short time frames, showing how each of us can use these "smartcuts" to rethink convention and accelerate success.

In every era, innovators from art to science to business have used what psychologists call "lateral thinking" to find better routes to stunning accomplishments. Smartcuts shows how they bucked the norm--and how the rest of us can too. Snow shatters common wisdom about success, revealing how conventions like "paying dues" prevent progress, why kids shouldn't learn multiplication tables, and how, paradoxically, it's easier to build a huge business than a small one.

Smartcuts tells the stories of people who dared to work differently and lays out practical takeaways for the rest of us. It's about applying entrepreneurial and technological concepts to success in life and work, and how, by emulation, we too can leapfrog competitors, grow businesses, and fix society's problems faster than we think.



Review Quotes

With spellbinding stories and relevant research, Shane Snow has delivered one of the most entertaining and thought-provoking books of the year." -- --Adam Grant, Wharton professor and author of Give and Take

"Smartcuts is surprising and awesome. It's Malcolm Gladwell meets Tim Ferriss. Part Good to Great, part McGuyver, this is a book every 21st century entrepreneur should read." -- Scott Gerber, Founder, Young Entrepreneurs Council

"Shane is living proof that Smartcuts work. He hacked his way into Fast Company, Wired and Ad Age, built a multi-million dollar startup by age 30, and now he's written his first of what I'm sure will be many excellent books. Follow this guy!" -- --Ryan Holiday, bestselling author of Trust Me I'm Lying and The Obstacle Is The Way

"[Smartcuts] is a manifesto for success for those who do not want to toil away unnoticed." -- Financial Times
