Fascinating book. If you're into the 10,000-hours theory, this book provides the counterargument, or perhaps the more complete/realistic version of the 10,000-hours theory. Some can win at the Olympics in a sport they've only practiced for a short ti ...more

message 3: by Roger

Roger Cottrell Thanks for the add Jeane and may I say that I am seriously impressed. I write quite a bit of science fiction myself and am looking for a number of writers with whom to put together a serious anthology.
ROGER


Jeanne Roger,

I enjoyed learning about you and your work.

Best wishes,

Jeanne
