Publisher's Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Big Potential, written and read by Shawn Achor.

Forget everything you thought you knew about being your best. It's not about your own skills or talents. Instead, real success in work and life comes from your connections and relationships - the teams you build around you, the friends you make - and getting the best out of them. You hugely amplify your own potential by helping others around you to realise theirs.

A TED talk star with over 16 million views, Shawn Achor is one of the world's leading experts on happiness and personal success - and author of the positive psychology classic The Happiness Advantage. Now, in this game-changing guide to greatness, he demolishes the myth of single individual achievement. With powerful stories, cutting-edge research and exclusive insights from Fortune 100 leaders, he shows how only by working with others will you ever reach your Big Potential.

Good, but no Happiness Advantage.

I'm a big fan of Shawn Achor, but this was disappointing when compared to his first book. Lots of references back to The Happiness Adv book for reference of research. It was enjoyable in that it added to advice given and research testimonies from earlier, but quite anecdotle.
