Murder Of Talent: How Pop Culture Is Killing “IT” By Lisa Loving Dalton, Amazon #1 Bestselling Author

Behind-the-Scenes Tell-All About How Talented Artists and Athletes Are Mentally and Physically Killed by Badly Behaving Fans, Families, Teachers and Coaches Who Deify, Vilify and Crucify Our Stars. How She Found Healthier Ways to Mentor the Talented and Bring Healing to Our Culture In the midst of award season, Lisa Loving Dalton, a forty-year veteran of the entertainment industry, dares to pull back the curtain of tinsel town to examine some very gritty facts. What stands out in her new book Murder Of Talent: How Pop Culture Is Killing “IT” is the no-holds-barred assay she makes on the fans, the families, mentors and the talented ones revealing the dangers that exist. An easy and dynamic read, with something for everyone, this part memoir, part political diatribe is also a master class for training for Peak Performance in art, athletics, politics and life. Dalton puts us all on trial for the death and destruction of our stars, our Dalton puts us all on trial for the death and destruction of our stars, our wannabes, ourselves and our culture. She calls for the arrest of some and even judges herself guilty of self-violence for allowing a famous coach to destroy her film-acting career. Then, with empathy and wisdom, Lisa gently steps us along a path to redemption with tips for each of us on how to stop the metaphoric and actual bloodshed, leading us to happier, healthier lives. Endorsed by a Clinical Psychologist and a Tony Award-winning Producer, with fore-word by noted scholar/author Dr. Sharon Carnicke, Dalton courageously shares painful true stories of how she and fellow artists were indoctrinated in PTSD-inducing techniques.

The knife is further twisted when we understand this destruction is still propagated by academia and manipulative super coaches, some making over a million dollars a year as they drain the pockets of penniless actors and a few super-stars to boot. No wonder stars are killing themselves with sex, drugs and other bad behavior. Perhaps the most publicly provocative aspect of this book is how children are traumatized into denying their talent by parents, teacher’s and peers. Parents fear economic and social instability, and even attach homophobia to talent, refusing to support their children in non-math/science careers, forcing them away from what they love and into other fields where they suffer, fail and take a toll on society. Dalton reveals what it takes to survive humiliation in the classroom, harassment and jealousy from friends, self-doubt and parental disapproval. It is rare that any adult passes a single day without repeated exposure to entertainment.

Yet learning how to uptake that noble task is at risk. Politically, the arts, while having scientifically demonstrated outstanding economic and health benefits, are being systemically eradicated from curricula. Murder Of Talent reveals the cost, the cause and a cure for the negative impact pop culture and its icons have on each other. It challenges the reader to reflect on their own role in society’s badly behaving celebrities while calling on coaches and parents to step up their game to offer higher quality mentorship. For those with talent, it asks them to go beyond their fears, demand respect and learn how to survive being deified, vilified or crucified by the public. “We need talent now as much as our tribal ancestors did when they carved masks on the cave walls. It’s time to stop the murder of talent and start healing the wounds of our culture through the arts.” Lisa Loving Dalton, National Michael Chekhov Association Master Acting Teacher, Director, Filmmaker, John Maxwell Certified Speaker, Trainer, Coach, Athlete, Amazon #1 Best-Selling Author of Falling For The Stars: A Stunt Gal’s Tattle Tales, has shared her performing, leadership and teaching talents across the world. She has appeared in over 200 films, TV shows and commercials. An avid motorcyclist, golfer, diver.
