And this week our Guest Host is admiring the book The Prodigy: A
Biography of William James Sidis, America's Greatest Child
Prodigy, by Amy Wallace.
(From Publishers Weekly) "The son of a brilliant Russian-immigrant psychologist associated with William James, Sidis (18981944) was reading the N.Y. Times at 18 months, typewriting at three and entered Harvard at age 11. His phenomenal memory, powers of concentration and reasoning, and breadth of interests astounded his school teachers."
