From the rear cover of this 362 page book: "This entertaining and revealing book is an entirely original study of the parentage, education, and early environments of hundreds of eminent people. Based on years of research, it provides startling answers to many far-reaching and fundamental questions about the nature of creativity. The Goertzels avoid technical psychological language, and illustrate their findings with such intriguing fillips of biographical information about the famous as the fact that, while trying to emulate birds, Edison sat on eggs and ended up smashing them, and that Albert Einstein made up his own religion and went about chanting hymns he'd composed. The result is a book that is at once highly engaging and an invaluable resource for anyone interested in children, in the components of fame, and in the development of human creativity."
