From the Publisher
Annotation Combining cutting-edge neurological insights with the results of his own investigative reporting, Daniel Coyle reveals a universal formula for success that can be applied to anyone, regardless of their field of interest. Coyle traveled the world collecting data from "talent hotbeds," such as Caribbean baseball leagues and an exclusive classical music academy in New York, in order to identify any common traits which linked those who excel in their fields. Then he analyzed the latest neurological research on myelin, a neural hormone proven to increase speed, accuracy, and competence. The results of this remarkable research are Coyle's three key elements of success--ignition, practice, and coaching--which he discusses in detail, providing compelling insights on how we can all maximize performance and achievement.
Editors Note Presents a plan for unlocking human potential and acquiring skills through the right kinds of practice, coaching, and motivation.
