"Myths, Facts, and Lies About Prodigies" primarily focuses on the history of William James Sidis who was an academic prodigy in the early 1900s and frequently considered to have been the smartest man on earth. For over one-hundred years numerous newspaper articles, journals, and books invented false stories about Sidis having been a failure in life. Aside from being an excellent reference book on the history of William Sidis, the importance of "Myths, Facts, and Lies About Prodigies" also helps to uncover some of the reasons why authors have so frequently spoken negatively about all prodigies and others who have above-average talents.
