Editorial Reviews

Review

"Talent is everything―whether in investing and building startups, or in other creative endeavors. Between product, market, and people, I've always bet on the last one as the biggest predictor of success. But while talent may be everywhere, it's unevenly distributed, and hard to 'find.' So how do we better discover, filter, and match the best talent with the best opportunities? This book shares how, based on both scientific research and the authors' own experiences. The future depends on this know-how."
―Marc Andreessen, co-founder of Netscape and Andreessen Horowitz

"The most important job of any leader is to find individuals with a 'creative spark,' and the potential to discover, invent and build the future. If you want to learn the art and science of spotting and empowering exceptional people, Talent is brimming with fresh insights and actionable advice."
―Eric Schmidt, co-founder of Schmidt Futures and former CEO of Google

"A useful and entertaining map for companies looking toward a creative future."
―Kirkus
