The Art of Possibility: Transforming Professional and Personal Life

The Art of Possibility: Transforming Professional and Personal Life - Rosamund Stone Zander, Benjamin Zander I read this book after watching a talk given by Benjamin Zander at Davos and another he gave at a TED conference. In person, he is inspiring, likable and he comes across as a genuinely good human being. Much of that comes across in his writing as well. He's a natural story teller and his passion for music and life are contagious.
