5.0 out of 5 stars Really challenged my thinking, 18 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Talent Code: Greatness isn't born. It's grown (Kindle Edition)
This is a great book - it really challenged the way I think. I also think it is an imperfect book. There were a couple of leaps that I just did not get, or maybe agreed with. However in the underlying hypothesis of the biological basis of skill in the process of myelination was both fascinating and very challenging.

Accepting the hypothesis creates a new basis of learning and the more important process of 'unlearning' in adults. This book will change the way I approach my work.

I also think the the review suggesting that this is a book about positive mindset totally misses the point. Positive mindset, as Coyle says himself, is irrelevant. It is how the mind is 'ignited' or focused and how this is then implemented in the right kind of deep practice, not just hard work.
