Product Overview

Where does talent come from? How does it grow? The surprising answer begins with a substance in our brains: myelin.

Until recently myelin was considered an inert form of insulation for brain cells.  New research has revealed that it is much more?that it may in fact be the holy grail of acquiring skill. What?s even more exciting is that it grows in response to activities that we can control.

Coyle reveals the simple yet powerful mechanisms through which human beings acquire skill: the kinds of practice, motivation, and coaching that grow myelin the fastest. Through visits to the world?s best soccer players, bank robbers, violinists, fighter pilots, artists, and skateboarders, and to the labs where myelin is being investigated, this compelling and instructive book will transform the way we view talent and enable all of us to develop our full potential.
