The Genius in All of Us: Why Everything You've Been Told About Genes, Talent & Intelligence is Wrong

by David Shenk
£8.99   paperback  Icon Books Ltd (2011)

The Genius in All of Us: Why Everything You The Genius in All of Us argues that talent – for piano playing, sprinting, designing computers, you name it – is not a thing we’re gifted from birth and coded in our genes, but a process – a lifelong project. The genetic legacy for which we thank our parents is not what holds us back – it is our inability, so far, to tap into what we already have.
Powerful, counter-intuitive, accessible and undoubtedly divisive, David Shenk’s book carries a deeply revolutionary and optimistic message: we are not prisoners of our DNA, and we all have the potential for greatness.
