We all know that even on our best day we are different from super athletes like Serena Williams, Michael Phelps, and Michael Jordan, but is that difference the result of nature or nurture? To answer the question, veteran Sports Illustrated journalist David Epstein queried scientists, athletes, and sports professionals and received, not surprisingly, a wide range of answers; some experts ascribing athletic ability to genetic endowments; others, to the 10,000 practice hours mantra that mentors regularly drill into their charges. The ultimate resolution to this puzzle remains, of course, unlikely, but that doesn't lessen the appeal of this honest, informed exploration. Now in trade paperback and NOOK Book.
