The Shattering of the Genetic Determinism Myth

Are you interested in the recent literature on genetics, talent and intelligence? (See my post on Anders Ericsson, Carol Dweck, Malcolm Gladwell, Joshua Aronson, Geoff Colvin, Daniel Coyle, Richard Nisbett, and Norman Doidge). If your answer is 'yes' you must not miss this book: The Genius in All of Us: Why Everything You've Been Told About Genetics, Talent, and IQ Is Wrong by David Shenk. This book convincingly shatters the genetic determinism myth and sets us free from ways of thinking that have for a long time for many people stood in the way of development and achieving success.
