The Talent Code: Greatness Isn't Born. It's Grown. Here's How. by Daniel Coyle
The Talent Code: Greatness Isn't Born. It's Grown. Here's How.

This book was a great read! It really opened my eyes as to how your brain can help you when you practice correctly. What I took away from this book was that great skill requires deep practice and deep practice requires energy, passion, and commitment. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is learning/practicing any kind of skill. I'm a dancer and I think this book helped me to improve how I practice each week. I gave the book a 4 out of 5 only because the focus is all on people who play sports or instruments and I would've liked to have read about a broader range of examples. Overall though, very interesting, eye-opening, and informative.
