Summary

A teenage boy goes through school and nobody thinks he has any particular musical talent. He goes on to be one of the most famous musicians in the world. A nine-year-old girl is thought to have a learning disorder. A psychologist thinks otherwise and opens the door to an extraordinary life in dance. A young girl in Greece dreams of academic life and becomes one of America's leading political commentators. Paul McCartney, Gillian Lynne, and Arianna Huffington all took different paths to discovering their Element and each was changed profoundly by the experience.
