Wright (Listening to Music), Guggenheim fellow and professor of music at Yale, provides details on the routines of successful people in this informative, anecdote-heavy book about famous people. Each of the 14 chapters highlights one quality or personality trait the author believes is tied to genius, such as childlike wonder or "opposite thinking." For instance, Wright discusses da Vinci's passion, Einstein's curiosity, Oprah's love of reading, and Marie Curie's determination through short biographies, as well as quotes from their journals or family. Some chapters consider fundamental questions, such as "which is more essential to greatness, intelligence or curiosity?" and is being exceptional the product of nature or nurture? Wright also goes beyond the common discussion of genius, most notably by declaring that established indicators of intelligence—SAT scores, IQ tests, and grades—are usually wrong. While Wright's topic ranges widely across vocations, there is an unfortunate lack of cultural diversity among the "heroes" profiled; South Asian, Middle Eastern, and African geniuses are glaringly left out except for a fleeting reference to Gandhi. Despite this narrow selection, Wright's freewheeling profiles of those considered to be geniuses will inspire readers to rethink their natural gifts. (Oct.)
