In 2010 world-renowned innovation expert Clayton M. Christensen gave a powerful speech to the Harvard Business School's graduating class. Drawing upon his business research, he offered a series of guidelines for finding meaning and happiness in life. He used examples from his own experiences to explain how high achievers can all too often fall into traps that lead to unhappiness. Full of inspiration and wisdom, this book will help students, midcareer professionals, and parents alike forge their own paths to fulfillment.

Would you listen to Painted Horses again? Why?

This story sweeps across continents and time, with characters that are crisp, flawed and engaging. I loved every minute of it

What other book might you compare Painted Horses to and why?

Think Lonesome Dove, with a true love story at the centre of things.
