Lessons in success

Author Gillian Zoe Segal came to think of life as a lot like a game of whack-a-mole as she wrote the just-published “Getting There: A Book of Mentors.” Like the “moles” in an arcade game, we sometimes get whacked on the head when we try to pop out of our holes.

The extraordinary Americans she interviewed for her book stand out partly because “even after getting whacked multiple times, they found a way to lick their wounds then pop back up with a smile.”

The author shares insights gleaned from Warren Buffett, Michael Bloomberg, Kathy Ireland and others in “I Interviewed the Most Successful People Alive — Here’s What I Learned.”
