"I can't remember a book that has fascinated, educated--and provoked--me as much as "The Sports Gene." Epstein has changed forever the way we measure elite athletes and their achievements."
--Malcom Gladwell
"Clear, vivid, and thought-provoking writing that cuts through science anxiety for rank-and-file sports fans."

--Michael Shermer, "The Wall Street Journal"

--Amby Burfoot, (1968 Boston Marathon Champion), "Runner's World"
"A must-read for athletes, parents, coaches, and anyone who wants to know what it takes to be great."
