No Fears, No Excuses: What You Need To Do To Have A Great Career by Larry Smith
Larry Smith is famous in Waterloo for being a really good Economics professor who also has a TED talk advocating for the importance of pursuing your passion. This book starts off kind of the same way, basically saying that in order to really excel you need to be passionate in your subject, and gives some tips on how to find your passion. The second part of the book assumes you have found your passion, and gives actually really realistic advice on how to pursue it. Larry Smith is actually a lot more moderate now, he doesn’t advocate blindly throwing away all reason to follow your passion, instead he gives strategies to combine reason to guide you on your career.
