Abstract:

"Do eminent adults have common childhood experiences? Did their parents help foster environments that could lead to eminence? Findings from [this book] reveal that eminent adults, in their childhoods, strongly disliked school but had families who valued education; had highly opinionated parents often with a dominating mother; grew up 'feeling different' from others. Readers are challenged to consider what factors will foster eminence in today's world of mass media and technological change"--Page 4 of cover.
