Life After Genius by M. Ann Jacoby Giveaway

lifeThanks to Valerie with Hachette Book Group I am thrilled to be able to offer up tp 5 copies of Life After Genius for giveaway!

Theodore Mead Fegley has always been the smartest person he knows. By age 12, he was in high school, and by 15 he was attending a top-ranking university. And now, at the tender age of 18, he’s on the verge of proving the Riemann Hypothesis, a mathematical equation that has mystified academics for almost 150 years. But only days before graduation, Mead suddenly packs his bags and flees home to rural Illinois. What has caused him to flee remains a mystery to all but Mead and a classmate whose quest for success has turned into a dangerous obession.

At home, Mead finds little solace. His past ghosts haunt him; his parents don’t understand the agony his genius has caused him, nor his desire to be a normal kid, and his dreams seem crushed forever. He embarks on a new life’s journey — learning the family business of selling furniture and embalming the dead–that disappoints and surprises all who knew him as “the young Fegley genius.”

Equal parts academic thriller and poignant coming-of-age story, LIFE AFTER GENIUS follows the remarkable journey of a young man who must discover that the heart may know what the head hasn’t yet learned.

  1. I used to be a bond trader turned full time mother(of 4 boys- one of whom has -like the book entered college early at 16 3000 mikes away from us now) but I have always wished i was a nurse or physician’ assistant.

  2. I don’t really have a dream job; something that would allow me to travel a lot, but only when I feel like it. I guess being a well-paid author would be perfect, as I love to write.

  3. My dream job… working with an NGO in a capacity that allows me to make a difference in the world… and still being able to pay my bills. Or I’d love to be a journalist and inform people and the world about issues that affect them, whether directly or indirectly. Please accept this as my entry; I’d love to win this book! Thank you!

  4. I am a first grade teacher… and I love it! To make it my dream job, I wish I could go to the bathroom when I had too instead of waiting for when another adult was available.

  5. I would love to be independently wealthy … and have a huge ice cream shop and give ice cream cones away at no charge.

Hmmmm... what do you think?
