Review:

"I only wish I'd never before used the words 'breakthrough' or 'breathtaking' or 'magisterial' or 'stunning achievement' or 'your world will never be the same after you read this book.' Then I could be using them for the first and only time as I describe my reaction to Daniel Coyle's The Talent Code. I am even willing to 'guarantee' that you will not read a more important and useful book in 2009, or pretty much any other year. And if all that's not enough, it's also 'a helluva good read.'"--Tom Peters, author of In Search of Excellence

"This is a remarkable--even inspiring--book. Daniel Coyle has woven observations from brain research, behavioral research, and real-world training into a conceptual tapestry of genuine importance. What emerges is both a testament to the remarkable potential we all have to learn and perform and an indictment of any idea that our individual capacities and limitations are fixed at birth."--Dr. Robert Bjork, Distinguished Professor and Chair of Psychology, UCLA

I only wish I'd never before used the words 'breakthrough' or 'breathtaking' or 'magisterial' or 'stunning achievement' or 'your world will never be the same after you read this book.' Then I could be using them for the first and only time as I describe my reaction to Daniel Coyle's The Talent Code. I am even willing to guarantee that you will not read a more important and useful book in 2009, or any other year. And if all that's not enough, it's also a helluva good read." --Tom Peters, coauthor of In Search of Excellence and author of Re-imagine!

"Daniel Coyle digs deep into the core of the insatiable desire to become 'better.' An amazing read with many practical applications for everyday life." --Apolo Anton Ohno, Olympic gold medalist

Book Description:

A completely new perspective on the way in which people acquire skill and talent

Book Description Cornerstone, United Kingdom, 2010. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Talent. You ve either got it or you haven t. Not true, actually. In The Talent Code, award-winning journalist Daniel Coyle draws on cutting-edge research to reveal that, far from being some abstract mystical power fixed at birth, ability really can be created and nurtured. In the process, he considers talent at work in venues as diverse as a music school in Dallas and a tennis academy near Moscow to demostrate how the wiring of our brains can be transformed by the way we approach particular tasks. He explains what is really going on when apparently unremarkable people suddenly make a major leap forward. He reveals why some teaching methods are so much more effective than others. Above all, he shows how all of us can achieve our full potential if we set about training our brains in the right way. Seller Inventory # AAZ9780099519850
