"Eat, Pray, Love" - Elizabeth Gilbert speaks

TEDtalksDirector - Eat, Pray, Love author Elizabeth Gilbert muses on the impossible things we expect from artists and geniuses. She then shares the radical idea that, instead of the rare person "being" a genius, all of us "have" a genius in a funny, personal, and surprisingly moving talk.
