A comedian, a particle physicist, and an Elvis impersonator walk into a bar—well, not really. But they do gather in our March/April issue: the Genius Guide to Success. You can get a copy right here — absolutely free with no obligation to subscribe.

This month we talk to people who've risen to the top in fields we find fascinating and incomprehensible (like particle physics and Elvis impersonation), and insurgents—people who are working long hours right now (growing a museum, infiltrating the comedy world), turning the thing they love to do into their dream career.

Plus, we meet the deep sea creature that's changing the future of technology with its super-weird skeleton, look at the medieval delusion that caused people to believe they were made of glass, and delve into the surprisingly riveting history of 19th century America's favorite leisure activity—watching people walk in circles.
