Jet Propulsion Lab engineer Adam Steltzner – writing with William Patrick – offers an absorbing memoir in which space’s challenges make ordinary business seem simple. Steltzner discusses facing failure, heeding your subconscious, cultivating a Zen-like beginner’s mind and tapping into your intuition. These ideas could seem like mystical hokum, except that Steltzner’s an unpretentious, honest and often funny narrator. And his ideas helped send a multibillion-dollar machine to Mars. Steltzner speaks directly to those in creative or scientific jobs and to managers who want to cultivate innovation and teamwork.
