Overview

Generativity: The Art and Science of Exceptional Achievement by Andrew Lynn

We are all in search of answers to the mystery of human achievement.

Why do some people excel while others do not?

In answering that question, Generativity will take you on a journey from the ancient Zoroastrians and the secret gospels of Nag Hammadi to the most recent scientific insights on expertise and peak performance.

Tracing the stories of outstanding individuals in the light of both traditional wisdom and modern science, Andrew Lynn examines the universal source of superior achievement in athletics, art, science, music, scholarship, politics, and business. Generativity is a uniquely accessible and wide-ranging account of what it is that makes us exceptional.
