Product description

Review

"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, bestselling author of FREAKONOMICS)

"Offer[s] an optimistic anti-determinism that ought to influence how people educate children, manage employees and spend their time." (The Economist)

"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)

"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 a person can achieve: to become a little bit better each day." (Daniel Coyle, bestselling author of THE TALENT CODE)

"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, bestselling author of MOONWALKING WITH EINSTEIN)
