In Why Greatness can't be Planned, Stanley and Lehman commence with a shocking medical discovery in synthetic intelligence that leads eventually to the belief that the target obsession has long past too some distance. They make the case that fab fulfillment cannot be bottled up into mechanical metrics; that innovation isn't really pushed via narrowly concentrated heroic attempt; and that we might be wiser (and the results greater) if as a substitute we whole-heartedly embraced serendipitous discovery and playful creativity.

Controversial at its middle, but refreshingly provocative, this publication demanding situations readers to think about lifestyles with no vacation spot and discovery with out a compass.
