Elixir is Ted Galdi’s first book. The story of child prodigy, Sean Malone, who won over a million bucks on Jeopardy and has an IQ of 250, and while in college at age 14 solved a mathematical problem that brought him to the attention of high-level government agencies who want to control him.
The story follows Sean from childhood to adulthood in a somewhat choppy fashion, and while it’s interesting, it could use a bit of line editing to make it read more smoothly.
The theme of the book is good, but I give it three stars for the writing.
