Students can change rapidly. Just entering a different room they may feel happier and more successful because they respond instantly to changed conditions. The same students may be bored and uncooperative, and then learn zestfully. The most powerful influence available to teachers is students' opinion of each other. Properly applied, it inspires them to do better in all ways, with results evident in a couple weeks, K-12. They're more cooperative, supportive, gain firm knowledge hourly, and are proud of their accomplishments. National legislation ordering schools to change is an unwanted distraction.

The New York Times bestseller – with a new afterword about early specialization in youth sports. The debate is as old as physical competition. 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 and the so-called 10,000-hour rule, David Epstein tackles the great nature vs. nurture debate and traces how far science has come in solving it. Through on-the-ground reporting from below the equator and above the Arctic Circle, revealing conversations with leading scientists and Olympic champions, and interviews with athletes who have rare genetic mutations or physical traits, Epstein forces us to rethink the very nature of athleticism.
