TED Talk: Are AThletes Really Getting Faster, Better, Stronger?

TED arms extended

A few months after The Sports Gene came out, I got an e-mail from a member of TED’s speaker selection group. It asked whether I could discuss–in 18 minutes or less, of course–why athletes have gotten so much better far faster than the human gene pool could have changed. Having spent several years thinking about related questions as I worked on the book, I think they came to the right place. You can see the talk here, and I hope you’ll agree.
