If you're alive, you're trying to get better at something. It could be your golf swing or guitar, parenting or painting, gaming, cooking, or any other skill.
The strategies in this book are top-shelf, pulled from neuroscience, research on excellence, and world-class masters in many fields, presented in an easy-to-understand style that is sometimes funny and always friendly.
Hundreds of helpful images and graphics.
Six sections, 42 hacks:
1-Talent Is Practice in Disguise: Learn the three kinds of practice, and how your brain is rewired when you learn new skills.
2-Motivation Is Like Bathing (A Daily Requirement): Your deepest, unspoken beliefs profoundly affect your motivation to improve, ya filthy animal.
3-You Are Unique (And So Is Everybody Else): Learn why your reaction to difficulty matters. And why teachers and coaches matter just as much.
4-Time: The Most Valuable Thing You Spend: Forget the 10,000-hour rule. Practice time isn’t what you’ve been led to believe, nor is it otherwise.
5-Where You At? Where you practice and who you’re with will affect how fast and how much you improve. What can you do about it?

Very Surprised!

The price was a steal but in the back of my head I thought it would overlap with Dan Coyle's work.

I was pleasently surprised! There are many great concepts in this book like chaining and performance speed chunking that I am excited to use. It contains unique information different from Dan Coyle, Josh Kauffman, and Tim Ferriss.

Good listen!
