This review is from: Chasing Stars: The Myth of Talent and the Portability of Performance (Hardcover)
This book is fascinating and debunks the myth that star talent continues to perform at the same level, especially when they move to other firms for more money. It forces the hiring companies to rethink their strategy in hiring stars for high prices, and it should make the star rethink chasing another job that offers more pay. Its timing is perfect with the recent economic downturn and unemployment highs. It's a book that should be read by those who are hiring, and those being hired.

This review is not helpful. Talent is extemely elusive, I doubt that the professor who wrote the book failed to recognize that. Is the problem that talent may not be as portable as we may think. Or is it that we still can't measure talent. That is why I was looking for an taste of the nuggets of insight that the book may have. But this review is actually discouraging.
