This book does actually teach you to juggle, I learned to do this really quite well in a short space of time, which I actually always thought was something I just didn't have the talent/ability to do. More importantly it uses the process of learning to juggle to illustrate valuable lessons about the nature of learning itself, which you can then apply to other areas of your life. I'm surprised this book isn't more famous as it's definitely one of the very best books of this kind I have read (and I have read a LOT of these...LOL)

The ultimate success book 30 Jan. 2000
By Mark Mifsud - Published on
Format: Hardcover
If you want to achieve your full potential in anything you are ever to do, whoever you are, look no further. This book helps with just that. Written in a playful tone, and with practical examples from the game of juggling, you will find all the confidence, courage and mental skills to do anything you aspire. As the book also teaches juggling, it's style will feel a bit unfamiliar to most readers, but considering how it improved my life I MUST give it a 5 star. Check out books about accellerated learning by the same authors as well.

An insightful book for jugglers and non-jugglers alike 20 July 1998
By - Published on
Format: Hardcover
A wonderful book. I am a very experienced juggler and found Gelb and Buzan's use of juggling as a metaphor for achieving success quite refreshing. The book is thoughtful and insightful and is readily accessable to jugglers and non-jugglers alike.
A truly innovative book! 28 Aug. 2013
By J. P. Reynolds - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I'm disappointed to learn that this book is out of print as it is a neglected gem. I don't juggle and I have no desire to juggle BUT I teach and consult a wide range of people in a wide range of industries and settings. I'm always looking for creative ways in which to engage audiences. This book has been a reliable source of inspiration for more than a decade!

I read this book once a year on average - just to give me a whack on the head. There are exercises that I've used to wonderful effect when teaching classes on public speaking as they get to some of the roots of fear.

From their own experience as jugglers, the authors apply core mental concepts to learning how to let go of the need for perfection and both enjoy and learn from failure. Their approach deserves the accolade "fresh."

This is one of my Top 25 favorite self-improvement / motivational books.

Learning to Learn 11 April 2007
By Jay Busari - Published on
Format: Paperback
I was amazed that I could do 3 ball juggling just from reading this book...of course, it took me some time and effort. But I did not expect that a written text book could teach and coach the development of motor skills.

I was also pleasantly surprised at the emphasis on relaxation techniques...which were very useful, and it felt awesome to be able to develope some techniques by reading a written text book.

I always believed that motor skills can be taught more effectively using a video or with a personal coach. So I was a little skeptical about being able to learn juggling from a book, but I really wanted to see if I could actually learn juggling on my own.

I have absolutely great respect for the author...for his technique of learning to learn.

I even tried to teach my staff juggling using the same premise and philosophy as this book. It was great to see them realize that they can in fact learn anything...and we juggling A4 sheets (crumpled up into paper balls)!

Great book for All Ages. 23 Jun. 2005
By Ekorre - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
It's great to find a book that guides us to achieving difficult skills. Gelb/Buzan shows how important making mistakes is to creating success. The books isn't a complete book on juggling, but I don't see any need for more pages than is written.

I haven't mastered 3 ball Juggling, but I am comfortable with it. I started 2 in 1 hand which is the basis of 4 ball juggling.

It's really demanding on your throwing technique and less on your sense of sight. Mastering 4 balls is a totally different dimension because it pushes you to your ambidexterity limit. Just don't give up and be aware of your technique.
