This will be "mandatory reading" for any kids I have. Shows how little meaning innate talent carries. Those who we think are brilliant - Mozart, the Beatles and Cezanne to name a few, spent years practicing to get good at what they do, they were not born with it. Biggest take away - We look around and find some CPA's, Programmers, Writers, Lawyers, Engineers, etc that have been "practicing" for 20 years and still are pretty bad at what they do. The book makes the case that real practice is stepping outside of your comfort zone. It's practicing hard with the intent of getting better - not just to get the job done. And it's not easy, in fact it usually is pretty painful. That whole "No pain, no gain", that's not just how you get big muscles, it's how you succeed at life. In other words practice until it hurts, no matter what you do, and then practice some more. You'll be glad you did later.

This book had me hooked being very sporty myself thought i could find the secret answers however, through some very lovely writing found that practise is the key. Very well written and structured book

Good, solid advice and insight. He seems to base most of his conclusions on research, and uses anecdotes mostly for demonstration purposes, not as sole proof of the concepts he describes. This book is not as easy of a read as many "self-help" books, and this is not a bad thing. This book is full of substance and low on sensationalism.
