Salt Lake City, Utah – Journalist David Shenk says that everything we believe about intelligence and "giftedness" comes from early-20th century guesswork and that it's all wrong. He's written a new book that looks at talent from a variety of scientific fields and it turns out that DNA isn't the blueprint of who we will become. Monday, Shenk joins Doug to talk about the interplay between genes and environment and about "The Genius in All of Us."
