<p><strong>A groundbreaking exploration of how finding one's way later in life can be an advantage to long-term achievement and happiness.</strong></p> <p><strong>“What Yogi Berra observed about a baseball gameーit ain't over till it's overーis true about life, and [<em>Late Bloomers</em>] is the ultimate proof of this. . . . It’s a keeper.”ー<em>Forbes</em></strong></p> <p>We live in a society where kids and parents are obsessed with early achievement, from getting perfect scores on SATs to getting into Ivy League colleges to landing an amazing job at Google or Facebookーor even better, creating a start-up with the potential to be the next Google or Facebook or Uber. We see software coders become millionaires or billionaires before age thirty and feel we are failing if we are not one of them.</p> <p>Late bloomers, on the other hand, are under - valuedーin popular culture, by educators and employers, and even unwittingly by parents. Yet the fact is, a lot of usーmost of usーdo not explode out of the gates in life. We have to discover our passions and talents and gifts. That was true for author Rich Karlgaard, who had a mediocre academic career at Stanford (which he got into by a fluke) and, after graduating, worked as a dish - washer and nightwatchman before finally finding the inner motivation and drive that ultimately led him to start up a high-tech magazine in Silicon Valley, and eventually to become the publisher of <em>Forbes</em> magazine.</p> <p>There is a scientific explanation for why so many of us bloom later in life. The executive function of our brains doesn’t mature until age twenty-fiveーand later for some. In fact, our brain’s capabilities peak at different ages. We actually experience multiple periods of blooming in our lives. Moreover, late bloomers enjoy hid - den strengths due to taking the time to discover their way in lifeーstrengths coveted by many em - ployers and partners, including curiosity, insight, compassion, resilience, and wisdom.</p> <p>Based on years of research, personal experience, interviews with neuroscientists, psychologists, and countless people at different stages of their careers, <em>Late Bloomers</em> reveals how and when we achieve our full potentialーand why today’s focus on early success is so misguided, and even harmful.</p> <p><strong>Praise for <em>Late Bloomers</em></strong></p> <p>“The underlying message that we should ‘consider a kinder clock for human development’ is a compelling one.”**ー**<em><strong>Financial Times</strong></em></p> <p>“<em>Late Bloomers</em> spoke to me deeply as a parent of two millennials and as a coach to many new college grads (the children of my friends and associates).
