In a world of child prodigies, perfect SAT scores, and gifted and talented programs, it’s hard not to feel like the world is conspiring to make the rest of us feel inadequate. Compared to those special few, how will the rest of us have a chance of realizing our dreams?

In Ungifted, cognitive psychologist Scott Barry Kaufmanwho was relegated to special education as a childsets out to show that the way we interpret traditional metrics of intelligence is misguided. He explores the latest research in genetics and neuroscience, as well as evolutionary, developmental, social, positive, and cognitive psychology, to challenge the conventional wisdom about the childhood predictors of adult success. Revealing that there are many paths to greatness, Kaufman argues for a more holistic approach to achievement. Combining original research, anecdotes, and a singular compassion, Ungifted proves that anyoneeven those without readily observable gifts at any single point in timecan become great.
