THE TALENT CODE Unlocking the Secret of Skill in Sports, Art, Music, Math, and Just About Anything

by | Read by John Farrell

Personal Growth • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

Talents develop when a specific type of practice gradually changes the habitual paths electrical impulses take through the nerve cells all over our bodies. Practice without consistency or passion doesn't produce the physical changes needed for new skills to become wired in. Effective practice occurs only when we are intensely focused on what we're learning, when the practice is "ignited" by a powerful desire, and when it is guided by a skilled teacher who dispenses advice expertly and has a strong connection with the student. John Farrell is an enthusiastic interpreter of this seminal personal growth book. Without sounding like he's selling or cheerleading, he lays out the technical information and fascinating case histories with unwavering respect for the author’s contribution to adult learning theory.
