We are re-airing this interview which originally aired on July 7, 2014. 

Fact-checkers, anesthesiologists, U.N. interpreters, structural engineers, and other professionals, are masters of their crafts but rarely get attention for their work behind the scenes. David Zweig takes us into the worlds of “invisibles”—top experts who do the quiet work behind the scenes of public successes. Zweig uncovers how these hidden professionals hide from the spotlight by mastering their craft in his book Invisibles: The Power of Anonymous Work in an Age of Relentless Self-Promotion.
