Summary
About 10 percent of the population is left-handed. However 16 percent of American presidents have been lefties. In fact, a disproportionately high number of left-handers factor in influential moments through history from Julius Caesar to Bill Gates. Through fascinating case studies of notables from ancient to modern times, Ed Wright explains the secret of lefty success. Psychology meets history in this fascinating and popular look at being left-handed and its effects on our world
