A great book for sports coaches,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Talent Code: Greatness isn't born. It's grown (Paperback)
I found this one of the best books on sports coaching I have ever read although it covers any talent/skills development. It is convincing as each chapter is backed up by academic research papers and it confirms why many of our current coaching techniques work. As a coach educator for British Rowing I have put together a few slides on the coaching ideas it contains and developed them into specifics for rowing coaching and had a good reaction from audiences. My only disappointment is that older people (>50 years) are less able to develop the myelin that is key to the process of talent development and I'm way over 50!
