"Ericsson s research has revolutionized how we think about human achievement. He hasfound thatwhat separatesthe best of us fromthe rest is not innate talent butsimply the right kind of training andpractice. If everyone would take thelessons of this book to heart, it could truly change the world." Joshua Foer, author of MOONWALKING WITH EINSTEIN

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?

[Peak] offers an optimistic anti-determinism that ought to influence how people educate children, manage employees, and spend their time. The good news is that to excel one need only look within. The Economist

All good leaders want to get better, and anyone who wants to get better at anything should read [Peak]. Rest assured that the book is not mere theory. Ericsson s research focuses on the real world, and he explains in detail, with examples, how all of us can apply the principles of great performance in our work or in any other part of our lives.
