The Sports Gene

Talent, Practice and the Truth About Success

In this ground-breaking and entertaining exploration of athletic success, award-winning writer David Epstein gets to the heart of the great nature vs. nurture debate, and explodes myths about how and why humans excel.

Along the way, Epstein exposes the flaws in the so-called 10,000-hour rule that states that rigorous practice from a young age is the only route to success. He shows why some skills that we imagine are innate are not – like the bullet-fast reactions of a baseball player – and why other characteristics that we assume are entirely voluntary, like the motivation to practice, might in fact have important genetic components. Throughout, The Sports Gene forces us to rethink the very nature of success.

Rezension
"Full credit to David Epstein, a Sports Illustrated journalist with a serious and deep knowledge of genetics and sports science, for his terrific and unblinking new book, The Sports Gene, a timely corrective to the talent-denial industry"

Zitat
"A wonderful book. Thoughtful... fascinating." -- Malcolm Gladwell, author of Outliers "Dazzling and illuminating" Guardian "A fascinating, thought-provoking look at the leading edge of sports performance, written by a guy who knows the territory. David, besides being a senior writer for Sports Illustrated, was a collegiate runner for Columbia University. More to the point, he's a terrific researcher and a fine, thoughtful writer" -- Dan Coyle, author of The Talent Code "Captivating...fascinating...His answer to the questions "Nature or nurture?" is both. If that sounds like a hedge, it isn't: instead, it's a testament to the author's close attention to nuance." New York Times "An important book on the relative roles of genes and environment-nature and nurture-in the building of a professional athlete ... bound to put the cat among the pigeons" Wall Street Journal
