The Genius in All of Us : New Insights Into Genetics, Talent, and IQ
by David Shenk




Overview -
Is true greatness obtainable from everyday means and everyday genes? Conventional wisdom says no, that a lucky few are simply born with certain gifts. The new science of human potential suggests otherwise. Forget everything you think you know about genes, talent, and intelligence, and take a look at the amazing new evidence.

Here, interweaving cutting-edge research from numerous scientific fields, David Shenk offers a new view of human potential, giving readers more of a sense of ownership over their accomplishments, and freeing parents from the bonds of genetic determinism. As Shenk points out, our genes are not a "blueprint" that dictate individual destinies. Rather we are all the product of interplay between genes and outside stimuli--a dynamic that we can influence. It is a revolutionary and life-changing message.
