When the rules are random
Part intellectual thrill ride and part success blueprint, THE CLICK MOMENT obliterates the idea that in business you can plan, strategize, and analyze your way to success.
In its pages, Frans Johansson proves that the simplistic narrative of success predictably resulting from a recipe of rare talent, careful strategizing and 10,000 hours of practice is hurtling towards irrelevance.

entrepreneurs can set “bait” for their
own click moments, notice them when
they happen, and harness their vast
