Q&A with David Epstein on “The Sports Gene”

Q&A with David Epstein on “The Sports Gene”

Sports Illustrated senior writer David Epstein explores the role of genetics in sports in his new book “The Sports Gene” (Current, 290 pages). In the book, Epstein reviews the latest genetic science to try to unlock the secrets of human talent and how it can be developed into truly great sports performances through coaching and adaptation to training. The book covers a wide range of sports, but there is a special emphasis on athletics (the author was a runner in college).

Epstein sat down with Race Results Weekly last Saturday to talk about the book in an exclusive interview.
