the concepts are very clearly stated, the concept of deliberate practice is stated as the prime reason and is defended by various examples.
Knowing that just about any desired skill can be learned or improved with focused practice.
It is worth re-listening to Talent is Overrated.
The content is factual and relevant
The new Ekhart Tolle
Yes, but a bit boring
The audio book, in sum, says the same point over and over with different examples - not very entertaining - more like a trial
The points made were hard to pick out of the long and rambling paragraphs. Additionally, the evidence cited did not clearly lead to the conclusions made.
The points (once they could be idenitified) are interesting and thought provoking, but could have been presented in a more organized way. Additionally, counterpoints to the conclusions were not discussed satisfactorilly.
A good read if one is looking for inspiration for one's own explorations, but otherwise not very educational.
I found this listen wonderful. There are some very under appreciated ideas examined and explained. It is not so much a motivational book as it is one that makes you accept that you have the ability to accomplish any goal you set. With "Deliberate Practice."
Should be read in tandem with Outliers - both expand on the idea of what it really takes to be successful.
Wonderful, highly recommended, right to the important facts and information you need to get better on anything in life. I am one of those guys that play the piano, the guitar, compose music, draw, architecture, some 3d modeling, apart from studying, working, and playing soccer......this book changed my mind about talent and goals.
This is by far the best audio book I have listened to. I have been asking my friends and employees to read and listen to this book.
The message from the book is very clear and inspiring.
I liked the overall book, many of the points made were old news. The points made in the book were many of the same topics discussed in Malcolm Gladwell's books.
