summary Smartcuts How Hackers Innovators and Icons Accelerate Success Smartcuts How Hackers Innovators and Icons Accelerate Success review ð 103 Th businesses world class heart surgeons and underdog marketers do in common to beat the normOne way or another they do it like computer hackers They employ what psychologists call lateral thinking to rethink convention and break rules that aren't rulesThese are not shortcuts which produce often dubious short term gains but ethical smartcuts that eliminate unnecessary effort and yield sustainable momentum In Smartcuts Snow shatters co. This was an easy to read book with a number of very interesting stories The principles and applications espoused were hard to find anything to disagree with certainly nothing revolutionary here This would likely be a 4 star book but it read very much like a series of clickbait articles all making use of the Gladwellesue This is the reason why we think fascinating account X happened BUT actually it s not that at all that grew old pretty fast Still despite these minor uibbles this is a fun book chock full of interesting stories though somewhat iffy applications and solid principles for those interested in business entrepreneurship and career advancement strategies
