At the end of her memoir "Eat, Pray, Love," Elizabeth Gilbert fell in love with Felipe, a Brazilian living in Indonesia. The couple swore eternal love, but also swore (as skittish divorce survivors) never to marry. However, providence intervened in the form of a U.S. government ultimatum: get married, or Felipe could never enter America again. Told with Gilbert's trademark humor and intelligence, this fascinating meditation on compatibility and fidelity chronicles Gilbert's complex and sometimes frightening journey into second marriage, and will enthrall the millions of readers who made "Eat, Pray, Love" a number one bestseller.
Eat, Pray, Love author Elizabeth Gilbert has a new fascination: genius and how we ruin it. In this TEDTalk, Gilbert muses on the impossible things we expect from artists and geniuses â�� and shares the radical idea that, instead of the rare person "being" a genius, all of us "have" a genius.
