The Talent Code: Greatness isn't born. It's grown Kindle Edition
'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 demonstrate 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.
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 --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The other two sections on motivation which the author calls "ignition" and master coaching which I think would be better referenced as masters and mentors, left me underwhelmed until I found the website with the same name as the book which adds great value to these topics and the book in general

I read it in a week whilst working on the frontlines of Covid 19. It is truly wonderful to learn that from childhood through our entire lives, we can be sparked to reach new heights. It also gave me hope to continue to practice until I reached my own level of expertise in my hobbies and work alike.
It's also great to know this stuff so you can encourage/teach/coach your own kids.
Also get 'The Little Book of Talent' by the same author, where he condenses the lessons from this book into helpful short tips that you can use yourself.
