Five things that really stuck out to me in "The Talent Code":
1. If you don't have passion don't even bother. That could mean in love, your career, friends, hobbies, life in general.
2. If you practice wrong you're wasting your time. How that applies to training is, are you lifting correctly? Feeding yourself
correctly? At the right
time? Are you putting yourself in a position to succeed?
3. Consistency is key. Years and years of consistency.
4. To break a bad habit or a bad practice you need to rewire or replace it with a good habit or good practice. And rewiring takes time, repetition, patience, diligence, and most of all, passion!
5. Be willing to live on the edge of failure. Get out of your comfort zone. Some failure is necessary for true mastery and success in any endeavor.

There has been a rapid growth in the field of neuroplasticity over the past few years. Much of that has not been available to the unintiated with a few exceptions. Now, Daniel Coyle has aptly filled that gap in "The Talent Code." This is a remarkable survey and application of the current research in the field. Don't let the topic keep you away from this valuable introduction to this field.
Individuals with children will find benefit for their offspring, adults trying to acquire new skills will find hope, and everyone will be informed by this wonderful book. The dynamic shift in neuro-theory and practice has dramatic implications for every area of our lives.
Otherwise, the book is well written and the reading is just excellent. A companion book which listeners might also enjoy covering tangential issues is "Outliers: The Story of Success" by Malcolm Gladwell.
