Publisher's Summary

In The Talent Code, award-winning journalist Daniel Coyle draws on cutting-edge research to reveal that, far from being some abstract mystical power fixed at birth, ability really can be created and nurtured.  

In the process, he considers talent at work in venues as diverse as a music school in Dallas and a tennis academy near Moscow to demonstrate how the wiring of our brains can be transformed by the way we approach particular tasks. 

He explains what is really going on when apparently unremarkable people suddenly make a major leap forward. He reveals why some teaching methods are so much more effective than others. Above all, he shows how all of us can achieve our full potential if we set about training our brains in the right way.

Chocked full of insight

This book is chocked full of insight so listen closely. And if you need a real world analogy to believe it’s truth listen to the few minutes he describes the football player jemarcus and then go Wikipedia his career.

Great Insight and makes a lot of sense

This book explained a lot of the things that I have seen and experienced. It also gave me ideas about how to sharpen my own talents and how to do the same in others.
