The objective of education is to develop the talent of individuals and collectives. Management gurus insist tirelessly on the need for talent and there are professionals whose job it is to search it out. We would all like to have talent. We all admire it. The question is, how can we develop it in our boys and girls and ourselves? There are no miraculous short cuts. Nor can one be an ‘instant millionaire’, or ‘learn Chinese in twenty hours’, or achieve any of the other marvellous things promised by deceptive self-help books. Talent is a habit and like all habits, it is difficult to acquire. There are also many kinds of talent. This book attempts to help our children to discover their own.
