“The Little Book of Talent should be given to every graduate at commencement, every new parent in a delivery room, every executive on the first day of work. It is a guidebook—beautiful in its simplicity and backed by hard science—for nurturing excellence.”—Charles Duhigg, bestselling author of The Power of Habit
“It’s so juvenile to throw around hyperbolic terms such as ‘life-changing,’ but there’s no other way to describe The Little Book of Talent. I was avidly trying new things within the first half hour of reading it and haven’t stopped since. Brilliant. And yes: life-changing.”—Tom Peters, co-author of In Search of Excellence
About the Author

Top customer reviews
Everyone should read this book. It could save the world countless hours of inefficient or "wasted" practice hours as people try to develop their skills. I recommend this book to everyone.
* Accurate Information
* Usable Information immediate application
No matter what page I may randomly turn to, the information is applicable, if not now --- soon. I am so impressed with this little book: 51 Tips, Glossary, Appendix and suggested reading: a lot packed into an easily read typeface that I also bought a Kindle edition ... always with me. Just another motivator.
I highly recommend reading "The Talent Code" first since it will provide a higher level of enthusiasm (the "ignition") to read this book and try the suggested tips.
If you haven't, then you may not quite get the full value. In my opinion, the book is too concise to fully grasp why he's telling you what he's telling you without the expanded insight provided by the books mentioned above.
If at one point in your life you contemplated that you just don't have enough talent and considered settling for average, this book paired with one or more of the books mentioned above just might get you excited about overachieving in life again.
