The story is relatively well crafted, holding an inner coherence. However, this book was suggested as an "Outlander" equivalent, which sadly, it's not....
John Jakes' classic novel of the civil war through the stories of the Hazards and Mains. Great story, well performed.
I have been reading extensively on talent and IQ for about three years. You know the regular suspects: Outliers, The Talent Code, Talent is Overrated, Bounce and the likes.
Shenk's book is fascinating in the depth of the science he goes into. With the book you get his full endnotes in PDF, which is quite the launching pad for further reading and research.
Well written, very well researched and very intersting.
Mann wrote a fascinating tale connecting Spain and China through silver, maize, and malaria.
As a history lover, this book gave me a new appreciation of the significance of malaria to the Americas. I found this book enlightening and enjoyable.
