Anybody can hire people, but making selections based on potential is of utmost importance. Everybody knows that the more talented employees will out produce those of a lesser talent. This book gives a good basis for making the best selections of employees by knowing how to spot talent. I learned a lot about what abilities and characteristics to look for, and why. A great read.

I was very impressed with the author, Prof. Adrian Furnham. This guy has credentials that could cover an entire wall. He knows how to put his thoughts into words that are easy to grasp. His concepts are also easy to put to everyday use. I learned how to spot raw talent, and how to spot people with trouble-spots that I should steer clear of. You can’t go wrong sitting down with this book and giving it some focus.
