Synopsis

There's a huge difference between the very best performers and everyone else; in terms of productivity there's a five-to-one gap. No one can afford to settle for the mediocre.

So why are some people better at spotting future greatness? How do talent scouts in any field - business, sports, education, the military or the arts - identify genius and put it to work?

Talking to the world's best, most secretive talent scouts, George Anders found that they all share an intense belief in finding high achievers who can create big successes. These are the arenas where brilliant recruiting is most vital - and where the rest of us can learn the hidden 'tells' that really matter. In The Rare Find, Anders reveals how venture capitalists pick winners like Apple, how the FBI's hostage rescue team finds its agents, and how Hollywood casting agents size up actors.

Anders pairs these frontline observations with cutting-edge research from psychiatrists, economists, recruiters and business strategists. He shows how anyone can hone the ability to recognise future greatness and discover tomorrow's stars.
