Some interesting ideas, but weak on science,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Little Book of Talent (Kindle Edition)
This is the second book by Dan Coyle that I've bought and read. The Talent Code was great, but sadly I'm not so keen on The Little Book of Talent.
What made the first book work, for me, was the inclusion of some science. Although he didn't give actual references (which would have been helpful) he usually gave enough clues for them to be found and described the relevant studies.
In the new book he has cut back on even this little bit of science and fallen back on pop psychology too often.
So, although he provided several interesting ideas that I think I'll try out, there were lots of others that don't seem to make much sense, and the frequent references to brain science were not persuasive at all. Because Dan doesn't provide references it will be hard to check the details of claims he makes about ideas being based on research. That's time wasting and a bit frustrating.
So, sorry, but only three stars this time.
