Excellent Research. Gets to the bottom of why we are getting fat. Deserves 5 starts. It is not however, a quick weight loss plan. The book gives you a new way to start thinking about food. On this new path the weight loss will come.
The voice performance was fantastic. Craig hit the ball out of the park!
His emotion and tonal changes, make the story come alive.
The author ignores countless studies that have been done on talent. The studies clearly indicate that there is a strong genetic bias towards being better at some things than others. For someone who is discussing the merits of hard work, I think he should have done a better job on his home work. Furthermore, to say talent has a minimal role, if any, in our development, simply ignores the diversity that makes us all unique. Does the author have children? Does he not see the vast differences between them? Does he not see the talents that exists within each child? The author's premise that all it takes is hard work is just another excuse for people to feel bad about themselves. For example, there is an implied if you play golf for 20 years, you can be Tiger. My bother in law has played golf for 30 years and has done so with great vigor. Although he has a great handicap, he is no Tiger. Again this is an area with lots of scientific studies, that the author has chose to ignore. Also, has the author taken into account the effects on one's personal life, when a goal is pursued at the expense of all others? Tiger and Michael Jackson are two excellent examples. Neither had an adolescence/childhood. Look how they turned out. The reality is that becoming a self-actualize, productive member of society is probably the greatest definition of success. Good luck to all.
