“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

* 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.
Each "Tip" is short and sweet, no more than a paragraph or two, with concrete images that help you understand it. But each tip is the result of intense study on a specific (narrow) topic. The tips are organized in a way that makes it easy to see the progression in building a skill. It is basically written in a style that builds on the performance skills being taught here. Each of these tips really resonate. Looking at my own life, I recognize techniques used by the best of my teachers over the years.
Well researched, well organized, and well written. Highly recommended.
I bought this book to be able to have it with in my sporting clays coaching with my students. After reading
The Talent Code one has a much better understanding of the contents in this book.
It does not get a 5 star rating from me because The Talent Code gets the 5 star.
My suggestion for those interested in learning how the brain builds talent of excellence in a person I suggest
buying both books. The Little Book of Talent has pages wherein you can write notes from The Talent Code,
which should help you in either doing it yourself or coaching another person to be the very best they can be.
