Influence manages influence,
This review is from: Influence (Hardcover)
Influence is a book I truly recommend to remind anyone why they are doing anything in life. It is a collection of interviews with individuals who have defined their field of work- Karl Lagerfeld, Peter Beard, Fransisco Costa and many others share the way they have managed to come to this particular point in life.
The book does not create illusions, all of these individuals strongly believe that the only way to achieve success in any form is to work hard, but to also have passion for the particular field you want to be successful at. In a way then, the interviews inspire to truly understand the one thing that makes a person passionate and make that their life work.
I would make this book compulsory for anyone who thinks that fame, success just arrives at people's doorstep. All the people that the Olson twins have interviewed show that hard work in something that a person is passionate about, even having to face continuations of failure, will eventually lead to something influential.
Influence does really mange to create an influence.
