The Myth of Experience


Book talk of the Day;

In our success-hungry contemporary society, we’d all love to believe that there are magic bullets to be found — secrets of success we can apply to guarantee the results we want. And when experience is examined uncritically and carelessly, it may seem to yield such secrets. But all too often, they prove illusory. Fortunately, though guarantees are nowhere to be found, a more scientific approach to experience can provide insights that can make our personal success measurably more likely.
