He quizzes experts on what happens when one enters ""the zone"" and wonders whether he too will be able to enter that ""rare and blessed state"" in which preternatural heights of performance are allegedly available. The author extends his search into large companies such as Heinz and IBM to examine their paths to victory. At length he begins to define a common winning quality. Beneath the humor, he offers sound, practical advice on what it takes to be successful in any endeavor, from playing horseshoes to managing a corporation--or a country.""
