The Talent Code: Greatness Isn’t Born. It’s Grown. Here’s How
By Daniel Coyle
Hardcover, 256 pages
Is talent innate or is it the product of careful nurturing and development? The answer, according to New York Times journalist Daniel Coyle, who travelled the world trying to piece together a picture of how disparate communities harness individual ability, boils down to a rather encouraging truism: practice makes perfect. Although Coyle delves into the neurological mechanisms of learning, his argument is based on the pillars of coaching, motivation and refining the skills acquired, which offers a positive picture for both educators and employers in how to make the most of any society’s most important resource, human capital. It also is a powerful argument in favor of individual perseverance and endeavor.
