Finally - the insatiably curious have a superhero!
29 January 2020 | by ChrystineA74See all my reviews

My entire life I've been told to focus. To chose one hobby. One subject. One major. One career. But I never could. After watching Jacob, I finally feel like that's ok. That my lack of ability to choose one thing isn't a bad thing. I will never achieve the level of multi-disciplined success that Jacob has (same brain capacity, wildly different speed of thought/understanding), but I'd rather be insatiably curious than bored in stagnation.
