Product description


"This is an empowering, encouraging work that will challenge readers to reach for excellence." --Publishers Weekly

"[Ericsson] makes a strong case that success in today's world requires a focus on practical performance, not just the accumulation of information. Especially informative for parents and educators in preparing children for the challenges ahead." --Kirkus Reviews

"This book is a breakthrough, a lyrical, powerful, science-based narrative that actually shows us how to get better (much better) at the things we care about." --Seth Godin, author of Linchpin

"Most 'important' books aren't much fun to read. Most fun books aren't very important. But with Peak, Anders Ericsson (with great work from Robert Pool) has hit the daily double. After all, who among us doesn't want to learn how to get better at life? A remarkable distillation of a remarkable lifetime of work." --Stephen J. Dubner, coauthor of Freakonomics and Superfreakonomics

"Ericsson's research has revolutionized how we think about human achievement. He has found that what separates the best of us from the rest is not innate talent but simply the right kind of training and practice. If everyone would take the lessons of this book to heart, it could truly change the world." --Joshua Foer, author of Moonwalking with Einstein

"The science of excellence can be divided into two eras: before Ericsson and after Ericsson. His groundbreaking work, captured in this brilliantly useful book, provides us with a blueprint for achieving the most important and life-changing work possible: to become a little bit better each day." --Dan Coyle, author of The Talent Code

"Wonderful. I can't think of a better book for a popular audience written on any topic in psychology." --Daniel Willigham, professor of psychology at the University of Virginia and author of Why Don't Students Like School?
