The Talent Code
Greatness Isn't Born. It's Grown.
This book explores the idea that talent is not fixed at birth, but can be developed and honed through certain approaches to learning. The author draws on cutting-edge research and examples from music schools and tennis academies to show how the wiring of our brains can be transformed. Learn why some teaching methods are more effective than others, and how we can all achieve our full potential if we train our brains in the right way.
