Why are some people so extraordinarily creative and innovative? Why can some continue to perform great at ages when conventional wisdom would deem it impossible? Those are the questions Geoff Colvin set out to answer in Talent is Overrated: What Really Separates World-Class Performers From Everybody Else.

    Irrational behavior is a part of human nature, but as MIT professor Dan Ariely has discovered in 20 years of researching behavioral economics, people tend to behave irrationally in a predictable fashion. Drawing on psychology and economics, behavioral economics can show us why cautious people make poor decisions about sex when aroused, why patients get greater relief from a more expensive drug over its cheaper counterpart and why honest people may steal office supplies or communal food, but not money.

    Nelson Mandella, Mahatma Ghandi, Martin Luther King Jr. They all had something in common: the ability to inspire people and make them want to change. Vineet Nayar looks to them as an example of how to effectively manage a company, by inspiring and listening to the employees and making them the priority. That way managing people becomes less about directing them in what to do and more about motivating them to make their own decisions.

    Today's education system has deterred students from asking more and more questions by making them focus more on having the right answers. As adults, we continue this way of thinking and shy away from questioning what we see. After studying master innovators like Steve Jobs and Jeff Bazos, Berger realized that what made them so successful is the fact that they kept asking questions. To further succeed in their careers, these creative thinkers went ahead and answered those big questions.
