I have read all Brown's books and have found them both interesting and innovative and if you've ever enjoyed any of his novel, I'm sure you would agree with me too but Deception Point is quite the opposite of what you would expect. I found it extremely boring and repetitive. Not one of his best works.
It's not enough to ask what successful people are like, in other words. It is only by asking where are they from that we can unravel the logic behind who succeeds and who doesn't. Successful people don't do it alone. Where they come from matters. They're product of particular places and environments.
