While most kids were memorizing their multiplication tables, Greg Smith was mastering calculus. Greg was as “boy genius,” and his unbelievable intelligence attracted a lot of media attention at a young age. Before he turned 11, Greg was interviewed on 60 Minutes, Late Show with David Letterman and The Oprah Show.
The attention, Greg tells Oprah: Where Are They Now?, was “crazy.” “There would be people that would recognize me everywhere,” Greg says.
Here, Greg opens up about the whirlwind life of a young person with a brilliant mind and how the media gave his voice an international reach.
