One of the best books I've read in recent years
on 17 November 2016
Being an avid table tennis player and fan I was more than familiar with Mathew Syed from his playing days. Once I noticed he had delved into writing books I had to pick this up.
Bounce is the first of a couple of books Syed has written and I must say he doesn't disappoint in either. Both Bounce and Black Box Thinking are essential reading if you are keen to delve into psychology and especially sports psychology.
Bounce touches upon many myths that souround talent and the notion of natural born talent. I was hugely impressed with the 10,000 hour theory of purposeful practice and how it's been put to the test.
In all an absolutely fascinating book that I simple couldn't put down!
