He discusses coaching strategies for kids, sports and the arts. He describes what goes on in the brain during learning and why continual practice is necessary.
Love love loved this book. Changed my whole way of thinking as far as trying new things in life and not being afraid to fail at them. Failing is what helps us eventually gain skill as we keep trying and trying again!!
This book does a fantastic job of explaining how to practice effectively to allow speedy progression in any skill you desire. Everyone needs to read this book, without a doubt.
In that Way
The stories are epic. The punchline is so human--so progressive and hopeful. The science is simplistic. The lessons learned are actionable and could prove fundamental to you or your children's ability to reach their potential.
