Compared to The Talent Code by Daniel Coyle, i enjoyed reading this one more. Ideas and concepts in this book are well supported by interesting examples. However, like many other self-help books, i think this one is also overloaded with context of the same message.

Apparently very few women are world-class performers. found the book seriously lacking. Good premise-half the population left out.

Basically this book is about the fact that there is no born talent, just huge amount of work and sweat behind all success stories.
Very usefull reading for all ages, but especially for parents of future prodigies.

Some eye opening statistics, scientific data, etc. Unknown facts from lives of Mozart, Tiger Woods, Polgar sisters and other geniuses.
Ten years rule for great performers and achievers.

And the final question-Does it worth the sweat?

Highly recommended!

The only downsize-author is trying to connect the findings to a business world and, in my opinion, not succeeding.
