Personality: Intellectually Driven
This is a simple, well structure treaty on the physiology and philosophy of the learning process which serves as a blueprint for teaching and coaching. This is in general, one of the tools parents (sometimes unknowingly) are looking for. It debunks the believe on born abilities and answers the question on: How we can help our children (or at least explain to them) how to achieve their best?
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
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."
Being a collection of supporting evidence and stories it's a difficult question to answer withing singling out those stories, which in my mind takes away from the question and the book as a whole.
I think it's well put together though sometimes I'm unsure of the logic in the sequence of the stories, I'm not a writer so I would assume there is a purpose for the progression.
The idea of deep practice and the practice of absorbing information, then consciously recalling it at my own will to solidify that pathway. I found I've done intuitively a lot of the ideas put forth in this book, which gives me greater appreciation for having read it because it brings structure now to what was once instinct.
If even as fiction or anecdotal evidence only the book still is worth a read on interest alone, it's a worthy practice to try and put aside preconceived ideas and opening the mind up to new ones without bias.
