In his book Smartcuts, journalist and entrepreneur Shane Snow analyses companies and people that do incredible things in a short time.

From SpaceX to The Cuban Revolution, from Ferrari to Skrillex, Smartcuts is a narrative that busts myths about success and shows how icons do the impossible by working smarter.

He doesn’t share shortcuts that produce dubious, short-term gains, but ethical “smartcuts” that yield sustainable momentum.
