I also worked hard on this book so hope you enjoy our words to live by. Morinosuke Kawaguchi’s unique concept of Gross National Talent and its corresponding Gross National Talent Index are introduced in this brilliant book.

We spent a longgggg time researching and analyzing data on from 350 databases, collecting data about the greatest performers and the world’s top creators. We collected the number of gold medals and scientific prizes, art competition results and much more. The Gross National Talent Index includes Nobel Prize Laureates, Formula 1 drivers, stars of classical ballet, the greatest Parkour athletes…the list goes on as we checked 114 events, such as Formula 1, to see where “talent” really comes from. Talent is a mystery, but with the Gross National Talent Index, for the first time, we can calculate what COOL really is.

Using Morinosuke Kawaguchi’s Gross National Talent Index, a nation’s strengths and weaknesses can be assessed and seen clearly, with numbers.
