What really separates the best from the rest?

We all know that it takes hard work, dedication, and the occasional dose of luck for someone to make it to the top of their chosen field. Yet, we also suspect that it takes a little something more—but what?
The Art of Doing asks today’s most successful celebrities, businessmen, and iconoclastic achievers, “How do you succeed at what you do?” Illuminating, surprising, and profoundly inspiring, interviewees include:
• Zappos’ CEO Tony Hsieh
• New York Times crossword puzzle editor Will Shortz
• Style commentator Simon Doonan
• Actor Alec Baldwin
• Foodie god David Chang
• And many, many more.
