Dr. Craig Wright’s new book, ‘The Hidden Habits of Genius.’

Our conversation today is the culmination of a multi-decade study of geniuses throughout history (Einstein, Curie, Mozart, Bezos, Jobs, Picasso, Ben Franklin, and Lady Gaga among them) as well as Dr. Wright’s personal observations gleaned from watching geniuses in action, at Harvard, Yale, and elsewhere. We’ll hear Dr. Wright identify several enablers of genius and Dr. Wright concludes our conversation with suggestions as to how we can incorporate our own genius into everyday life.

That, of course, is our guest today, Dr. Craig Wright, reading from his new book, The Hidden Habits of Genius: Beyond Talent, IQ, and Grit — Unlocking the Secrets of Greatness.

Dr. Craig Wright is a graduate of the Eastman School of Music, holds an M.A. and Ph.D. from Harvard, and taught at Yale for forty-four years where, as the Moses Professor of Music Emeritus, he continues to teach “the genius course” online each summer. Please join me in welcoming to the Not Old Better Show via internet phone, Dr. Craig Wright.
