Price: $3.99 USD. Words: 93,510. Language: English. Published: October 10, 2011 by Crossroad Press. Categories: Nonfiction » Biography » Other biographies
William James Sidis (1898-1944) was born to a psychologist with some unorthodox ideas about child rearing, attended Harvard at an absurdly young age, only to fail to reach his potential. Wallace's book, the only biography of this most enigmatic of prodigies, gives us a balanced look at Sidis' up-bringing and a somewhat revisionist look at his later life.
