Geoff Colvin, "Talent Is Overrated: What Really Separates World-Class Performers from Everybody Else"
2008 | ISBN: 1591842247 | 224 pages | PDF | 22,7 MB

One of the most popular Fortune articles in many years was a cover story called “What It Takes to Be Great.” Geoff Colvin offered new evidence that top performers in any field–from Tiger Woods and Winston Churchill to Warren Buffett and Jack Welch–are not determined by their inborn talents. Greatness doesn’t come from DNA but from practice and perseverance honed over decades.
