The Talent Code – A Must Read


Just finished a terrific book- The Talent Code: Greatness Isn’t Born. It’s Grown. Here’s by Daniel Coyle. Tons of very good, thought provoking information. Well written, scientifically accurate without being overbearing. I am obviously interested in developing talent, I think this book really nails it. Reinforced some ideas and challenged others in what has to be done to develop talent. The fundamental premise is that talent can be developed, could not agree more. I have seen and done it. You may not agree with all of it, but if you are a coach or a parent it will make you think twice about what you do.
