Summary

"An inspiring look at the hidden stars who perform essential work without recognition. Expanding from his acclaimed Atlantic article, "What Do Fact-Checkers and Anesthesiologists Have in Common?" David Zweig explores what we can all learn from a modest group he calls "Invisibles." Their careers require expertise, skill, and dedication, yet they receive little or no public credit. And that's just fine with them. Zweig met with a wide range of Invisibles to discover first hand what motivates them and how they define success and satisfaction. His fascinating subjects include... - a virtuoso cinematographer for major films. - the lead engineer on some of the world's tallest skyscrapers. - a high-end perfume maker. - an elite interpreter at the United Nations"--
