Now that we are living the World Cup mania, I think it’s time to point to this column by Stephen J. Dubner and Steven D. Levitt, authors of Freakonomics, on why most football (that’s soccer for Americans) stars are likely to be born in the first three months of the year. However, it is not entirely about footballers, but rather about how high performances are the result of hard work and not talent, and therefore a star is made, not born. On a related note, check out what our friend SunShine has to say on the book. I still can’t find time to read it, but sure will do.
