Dallas Morning News columnist Lee Cullum joins Diane for a discussion of genius, and its rise and fall over the past century. Her new book describes people who’ve been outstanding in fields ranging from art to science to music to politics. The title of her book refers both to the fact that such people often become achievers at a very young age, and the sense that the early part of the 20th century produced many more geniuses than did the latter half.
