For those who believe that someone is born with talent they should really read this book.
Syed easily dismantles the idea that successful people are born talented.
The author runs out of good ideas half way through the book. There are some really interesting studies and concepts in the opening chapters but it is difficult to say it was worth a full purchase. Maybe rent from a library if given the chance or just read Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell.
The author forgot what this book was about in last 3 chapters.
also, no conclusion? I was hoping to hear a sum up at the end, specially since the author started a whole new story in last three chapters.
Quite an interesting read though very similar pattern and message as Malcolm Gladwells, Outliers.
However, it has its own touch and a variance of deeper examples that creates its own authenticity.
All in all it was enlightening and interesting and made me think on how to raise my kids.
I recommended it already.
Very useful information if you want to know about factors that could inhibit your success in general.
We make our minds believe things that aren't true in todays society with all the made up rules that people have about how the world is, what is good and bad, etc.
This book clears up a lot of things.
