We’re thrilled to announce that the Alan Flusser Custom Shop will be hosting a book signing event with Portfolio author Geoff Colvin on Thursday, November 19th in NYC.
Colvin is a Senior Editor at Large of Fortune Magazine and the author of TALENT IS OVERRATED: What Really Separates World-Class Performers from Everybody Else (a Wall Street Journal and BusinessWeek bestseller).
The event is open to the public and will be held from 6:00-8:00pm at the Alan Flusser Custom Shop at 3 East 48th Street.
If you’re not already familiar with TALENT IS OVERRATED, Colvin offers a new way to think about high performance in all fields – from parenting, music, and sports to academics, investing, and managing. He argues that ANYONE can become an extraordinary performer, regardless of their background. He highlights the stories of people like Tiger Woods, Chris Rock, Monica Seles, Warren Buffett, Yo-Yo Ma, and Michael Phelps to explain that the key to their success wasn’t some natural gift. Nor was it just plain old hard work. It was something Colvin calls “deliberate practice” – a specific type of practice that we can all apply.
