I've always known that practice, especially in the arts, yields better results. But what an eye-opener to learn that practice, as we've known it, will not yield the best results. It's "deliberate practice" that will, according to this book and the research behind it, that results in top-line performance.
I would have loved to get to Chapter 5 quicker, as much of the beginning seems somewhat repetitive in parts, but still enlightening because of the case studies, examples, and research it puts forth.
I have, since reading this book, "designed" my own deliberate practice routine in my field (voice-overs) and I look forward to seeing the results. Two weeks later, and even my agents are noticing on improvement in what I submit. The bad news is that this could get out. The good news is that most people don't have the commitment to do it.
