End of Average: How We Succeed in a World that Values Sameness by Todd Rose

In The End of Average, Rose, uses the new science of the individual to reveal the remarkable fact that no one is average.
In The End of Average, Rose, the director of the Mind, Brain, and Education program at Harvard University, uses the new science of the individual to reveal the remarkable fact that no one is average. Not your neighbors, not your co-workers, not your kids, and not you.

Weaving science, history, and his own experiences as a high school dropout, Rose offers a powerful alternative to the average--three key principles derived from the science of the individual: The jaggedness principle (talent is never one-dimensional), the context principle (personality traits do not exist), and the pathways principle (we all walk the road less traveled). These "principles of individuality" unveil our true uniqueness, long obscured by an educational system and workplace that relentlessly judges our value by weighing us against the average.
