    Are stars like Usain Bolt, Michael Phelps, and Serena Williams genetic freaks put on Earth to dominate their respective sports? Or are they simply normal people who overcame their biological limits through sheer force of will and obsessive training? In this controversial and engaging exploration of athletic success, Sports Illustrated senior writer David Epstein tackles the great nature vs. nurture debate and traces how far science has come in solving this great riddle.

    Cynthia says: "Epstein writes! He scores!"
    "Engaging and well-researched"

    Downright fascinating, this book was a joy to listen to. It completely captured the complexity of understanding the genetics of any trait with captivating examples from scientists around the world. Well written, and well narrated I recommend this book.
