Product description

Review

"I only wish I'd never before used the words 'breakthrough' or 'breathtaking' or 'magisterial' or 'stunning achievement' or 'your world will never be the same after you read this book.' Then I could be using them for the first and only time as I describe my reaction to Daniel Coyle's The Talent Code. I am even willing to 'guarantee' that you will not read a more important and useful book in 2009, or pretty much any other year. And if all that's not enough, it's also 'a helluva good read.'"--Tom Peters, author of In Search of Excellence

"This is a remarkable--even inspiring--book. Daniel Coyle has woven observations from brain research, behavioral research, and real-world training into a conceptual tapestry of genuine importance. What emerges is both a testament to the remarkable potential we all have to learn and perform and an indictment of any idea that our individual capacities and limitations are fixed at birth."--Dr. Robert Bjork, Distinguished Professor and Chair of Psychology, UCLA

I am even willing to guarantee that you will not read a more important and useful book in 2009, or any other year. And if all that's not enough, it's also a helluva good read." --Tom Peters, coauthor of In Search of Excellence and author of Re-imagine!

"Daniel Coyle digs deep into the core of the insatiable desire to become 'better.' An amazing read with many practical applications for everyday life." --Apolo Anton Ohno, Olympic gold medalist
