This book shows how to find, attract, develop, motivate, and retain stars. It's full of evidence and provocative ideas to help every talent leader.This is the book I want to hand every manager I've ever worked with who mistakenly assumes 'give me 5 minutes with a candidate and I'll tell ya if they are a good hire.' Every chapter is filled with quotes, findings, and ideas that I want to post on Twitter and share with the world.Provocative, funny and extremely useful, this incredible psychological tour de force will help you find and unleash the talent you've been looking for. A brilliant book!This book is very much like Tomas himself: insightful, frank, and captivating. A must-read to get talent management right... if you are not afraid to learn you have been doing it wrong! In an age where attracting and retaining the best talent is the ultimate, and perhaps only, competitive advantage, the solutions Chamorro-Premuzic suggests are all the more important.No other book has changed my perceptions on talent as much. Chamorro-Premuzic's insights are profound and timely, and his book is filled with provocative and profound ideas.There is a war ON talent. Tomas is a four-star general and this is a winning strategy to stop it.
