The Genius in All of Us

     I loved Carol Dweck's book Mindset, especially when she writes about "growth mindset" trumping "fixed mindset" and how intelligence can be nurtured over years rather than thinking you get what you get when you are born.  
     Here is a new book about intelligence, The Genius in All of Us: Why Everything You've Been Told About, Genetics, Talent, and IQ is Wrong by David Shenk.  While you are at amazon, use the "Click to LOOK INSIDE" feature and be sure to read the first chapter; it's right there, free.  If you do read the first chapter and you are a baseball fan, you'll love what Shenk says about Boston Red Sox superstar Ted Williams.  
     Also, you can read this NYTimes review by Annie Murphy Paul.
