The Talent Code

The Talent Code: Greatness Isn’t Born. It’s Grown. Here’s How
by Daniel coyle

Book cover: The Talent CodeThe Talent code examines “hotbeds” of talent around the world to figure out how they create so many skilled people.

The author investigates highly successful places like a Russian tennis camp, Brazilian soccer clubs, outperforming academic programs, the Z-Boys skateboarders, and a prestigious music school, among others.

Given the diversity of fields he studied around the globe, the Author tries to find common threads that tie them together. How do unrelated places with no knowledge of each other come up with similar training methods? Why do good teachers and coaches share common traits? The author finds his answer in neuroscience and its new discoveries about myelin.
