2.0 out of 5 stars Not impressed, 15 July 2010
By 
This review is from: The Talent Code: Greatness isn't born. It's grown (Paperback)
If I read the word myelin again I'm liable to vomit, I'm not being funny but the title says it all, talent is grown, and it's because of myelin, got that much on page 1 or so, but I don't know why it was necessary to reiterate that fact an average of roughly twice per page for over 200 pages, by the final chapter it really was nauseating. Unnecessary repetition sums it up, I learn't a meagre amount from the book which came mainly from recycled quotes by various notables. Nicely written in places, but to be honest I wouldn't dare publish a book that repeats such a limited core of information in rather creative ways until it's size is suitably book-like. May have made a wonderful 3 page article.
