Judit Polgár – Geniuses are made, not born

Now that’s taking your thesis seriously, resulting in one of the top chess players (and the best female chess player ever) in the world:

Polgár and her two older sisters, Grandmaster Susan and International Master Sofia, were part of an educational experiment carried out by their father László Polgár, in an attempt to prove that children could make exceptional achievements if trained in a specialist subject from a very early age. “Geniuses are made, not born”, was László’s thesis. He and his wife Klára educated their three daughters at home, with chess as the specialist subject.
