Introduction: Success isn't about you, it's about us -- The Red Baron and the forgotten ace -- The First Law: Performance drives success, but when performance can't be measured, networks drive success. Grand slams and college diplomas ; The $2 million urinal -- The Second Law: Performance is bounded, but success is unbounded. How much is a bottle of wine worth? ; Superstars and power laws -- The Third Law: Previous success x fitness = future success ; Exploding kittens and sock puppets ; The ear of the beholder -- The Fourth Law: While team success requires diversity and balance, a single individual will receive credit for the group's achievements. Kind of conventional, kind of innovative, kind of blue ; The algorithm that found the overlooked scientist -- The Fifth Law: With persistence success can come at any time. Einstein's error
