What's that book with the thing?
December 18, 2013 12:26 PM   Subscribe

I'm trying to recall a business/self-help book. The main idea was that setting goals and pacing yourself is counterproductive, and that accomplishment happens by immersing one's self in a big idea. Steve Jobs, etc. I believe the cover was an illustration of a businessman opening a shirt to reveal a superhero costume. There may have been a critique of Tony Schwartz' energy management model inside. It was probably written in the last ten years. Can anyone name the book?

There it is. I swear I typed in every combination of over-/out-/super- and achieve/perform/accomplish/commit. Thank you!

Also, eponysterical username.
