A very positive, and thoughtful, review by Laura Miller.  

As someone who has always resisted genetic determinism while still subscribing to the secular mystery religion of talent, I confess that The Genius in All of Us has quietly blown my mind. But the book's premise has far more profound implications for social policy....While The Genius in All of Us isn't an inventive, sensitive piece of writing like Shenk's celebrated book on Alzheimer's disease, The Forgetting, it isn't meant to be; he has deliberately stripped it down to communicate a handful of insurrectionary ideas as simply and unequivocally as possible.
