Author David Zweig is fascinated by people who choose careers that demand high degrees of proficiency and attention to detail yet almost always remain out of sight to the average person. Zweig, a former magazine fact-checker, traveled the world to learn the stories of high-achieving individuals like structural engineers, foreign language interpreters, anesthesiologists, and others for his book.
