Advice is for Winners explains how to be more proactive and more skilled in seeking advice from others for better decision making in life and at work. The book describes the many benefits of advice and why people often fail to seek it.

After reviewing insights from the self-improvement and scholarly literature as well as folk wisdom, he lays out principles and steps for doing it right?as a lifelong habit. The author draws on his experiences as an observer, traveler, father, academic research scientist, board member, and software internet entrepreneur. Dr. Valdes-Perez was co-founder, chairman, and nine-year CEO of Vivisimo, bought by IBM in 2012, and was a 2007 Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year. He was on the computer science faculty at Carnegie Mellon University, where earlier he completed a PhD under the Nobel Laureate Herbert A. Simon. He remains involved in new start-up ventures and lives with his family in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
