it's nothing like the preview of the book,
it is just listing and describing on of the best soccer or tennis technics
no a word how to improve studding time , or master new language in faster time
nice listen but nothing interested to be learn form that book ,
waste of money

The title is not sexy enough to capture the value of this book. The first thing I should say is it was well read. I never tired of the narrator. Aside from the narration it is well written and chalk full of information, written in a compelling way. Ultimately it made me think a little differently about the process of learning. I think it's an essential read for those who teach, coach or parent. Its entirely worthwhile for those that don't fit in the above categories too. So if you are debating it, pick it up. You can't regret this selection.
If you've read Outliers, Talent is Overrated, etc., there's nothing new for you here. If you haven't read those books, they're better than the Talent Code.
This book in a nutshell: Deliberate practice + motivation + coaching = the Talent Code.
Yes, the talent code changed the way I approach my career as an educator. The teaching of deep practice is a phenomenal concept and allows the reader (listener) to grasp a simple but powerful approach to self improvement. I am considering using The Talent Code book as a supplemental work at the collegiate level.
The story telling about the way that John Wooden coached.
Didn't finish it. Lost interest. Reads kind of like an infomercial. Seems to me there is no way that anyone can use the findings to build talent.
Profoundly Enlightening book!
Myelin. A substance we should all know about.
Want to learn how to build talent? This is how...
Lots of examples, explanations, and really awesome stories about how the best became the best.
The speaker is a little monotone but the content is so interesting it's easy to get over.
Interesting, it focuses on how our brains work for learning new information, specifically the effect of myelin in neuro pathways.
I would have liked a little more meat but there are some pearls around accelerated learning, deep study and teaching.
It is very thought provoking. I finished the book over a week ago and the content is still dominating my thoughts. I will listen again to try and pick up any little nugget that I can employ with my own kids as well as the kids I coach.
The deep practice / screwing up makes them better parts have been the subject of much of my thinking since listening. It’s challenged me to find way to push my players to the edge of their abilities while at the same time keeping them in a growth mindset so discouragement doesn’t creep in. Just this section alone is well worth the investment.
Knowledge is only the beginning, what we achieve from that knowledge shapes our lives.
The book explains each theory with examples that help the reader understand the concept.
I love the idea that talent can actually be built on and earned not just something your born with. This book has a very clear message "if you want to get better at something you have to make mistakes, and you'll eventually get better at it."
