The Talent Code Summary

6 min read ⌚ 

The Talent Code SummaryMicroSummary: Using recent neuroscientific findings and an in-depth sports know-how, bestselling author Daniel Coyle cracks “The Talent Code” to uncover that, rather than born, greatness is grown, being a well-baked product of three ingredients: deep practice (because it makes perfect), ignition (because you need motivation to get up once you fail), and master coaching (because, what are teachers for?).

Greatness Isn’t Born. It’s Grown. Here’s How.

Remember when we said that some parts of you are nature and others nurture?

Well, Daniel Coyle is not exactly the type of guy who’d agree to this straight away. So, he has made his own personal research on the subject.

In “The Talent Code” he reveals his considerably different findings.

And we reveal the most important among them.

Who Should Read “The Talent Code”? And Why?

Have you ever wondered why some nations are consistently good at some things? For example, why almost all former world chess champions were Soviets, or why the Chinese are ever so dominant in table tennis?

Well, “The Talent Code” claims to have the answers for you. And they will certainly interest you, even if you merely want to impress your friends with some popular science wisdom. They will even be of practical value to you, if you are a coach, an athlete, musician – or, really, anything which requires from you a lot of practice.

“The Talent Code Summary”

It’s not like we haven’t said this a hundred times before:

Your brain is an incredible organ!

And we’re just starting to figuring out its inner workings.

One of these new neuroscientific findings is the basis of Daniel Coyle’s “The Talent Code.” Namely, the recent discovery that the old “practice makes perfect” adage has a scientific basis.
