    1. Hans says:

      This book is first and foremost a cultural myth-buster. There are so many dangerous collectively held beliefs about human potential and its limits. One of the greatest insults that we can say to someone who is talented is that they came by it naturally. When we label people as naturally talented, or smart it is a back-handed compliment that tries to downplay their efforts while excusing our own laziness. Everyone who is talented or gifted came by it the hard way, through dedicated hard-work. Tha [...]

    2. Simmoril says:

      One of the most often-quoted facts regarding talent, which I first heard in Malcolm Gladwell's "Outliers", is that becoming an expert in a given field takes on average about 10,000 hours of deliberate practice. However, that term 'deliberate practice' can seem somewhat vague: what exactly is supposed to happen during those 10,000 hours? Coyle's book is the definitive answer to that question. In his book, Coyle explores this notion of deliberate practice from all angles. To begin, he starts out w [...]

    3. Amir says:

      The concept of talent (myelination of neurons) depicted in this book has the potential to drastically alter one's view of talent and those who we might know as genius. Talent code reasonably portrays an effective learning framework along with what sparks off a burning desire in one's soul after which groundbreaking expertise appear. The only downside to the book I would say is that about on 99 percent of the time it focuses on sports and music as talent and not any major science as it is claimed [...]

    4. Jim Razinha says:

      Coyle asks, "why does it take people so long to learn complex tasks?" Ume they're complex? Any time someone opens up with how they'll reveal "revolutionary scientific discoveries", the best advice is to run away. I didn't take my own advice and stubbornly slogged through this collection of anecdotes about "hotbeds" (he loves that term) in which he reaches far, contradicts himself, incredibly co-opts the Tom Sawyer fence whitewashing story to his means (reallyy tosses thousands of years of human [...]

    5. Yazeed says:

      The Talent Code is a book about talent and skill, and how they are developed. It explains why we see bursts of talented people, Russian tennis players, Brazilian football players, Italian artists, and others. It is based on a simple but powerful idea once you truly understand it. It's not very different from "Outliers" by Malcolm Gladwell, but it is more researched, more accurate, and simply more entertaining than Gladwell's book. Plus, Gladwell ends his book by trying (and failing) to explain w [...]

    6. Heather says:

      There is so much to be gained from what this book teaches. This is one of my favorite books so far from 2012.What makes talent? Is is born or made? The theory behind this book is that talent is made. The way this is done is by "deep practice". Deep practice isn't just about practicing something over and over again--it is about practicing in a certain system of doing, messing up, and doing over again until you get it right. What I love about this theory is that to be talented you must fail and le [...]

    7. Emeline says:

      I'm on the fence about this book. The subject matter is riveting, but it's the writing that throw it all off for me. It's too catchy, to commercial. The author has a penchant for grand claims which I don't think sits well when trying to write a book rooted in science. He is passionate, I'll give him that. I always feel I am being actively sold something, and talked down to as if I were a child, his little riddle about myelin production got on my nerves pretty quickly, as did all the endless case [...]

    8. Isaac Yuen says:

      I checked this out based on a recommendation from my professor, a lifelong educator who’s deeply immersed in the field of leadership and organizational development. He stated, on no uncertain terms, that this was one of the best reads out there on talent development. Not just talent in one area, ALL talent.The central premise, which is repeated for effect throughout the book, is that “skill is insulation that wraps neural circuits and grows according to certain signals.” That insulation is [...]

    9. Glenda says:

      This is a must-read for teachers, particularly those who believe all students can learn. Daniel Coyle speaks to the value of hard work, appropriate mentors, and effective motivation (which he calls ignition) in developing talent. I particularly like Coyle's acknowledgment that experience and expertise matter. In fact, he claims that it takes one ten years and/or 10,000 hours of "deep practice" to become an expert in one's chosen profession or avocation. Take that, Bill Gates. Coyle also pays hom [...]

    10. Sunny says:

      Brilliant book about talent and how to nurture, ignite, coach and essentially spot it in individuals. As the father of 2 little boys who I coach in both boxing and football (sock-her) there were about 5/6 really interesting leadership / coaching techniques that I picked up from the book that I have already started to implement into their training and my own. One of the differentiators of this book was the introduction, into my vernacular at least, of this substance called myelin. Myelin sounds l [...]

    11. Marcus says:

      I like that Coyle actually went out and visited "talent hotbeds" and tried to synthesize ways they practice, motivate and coach rather than just citing other studies and books. I'd never heard of myelin so that was interesting, though his miracle drug description of it is ridiculous.The thirty second takeaway: practice in chunks, breaking up music to measures, bringing sports to a smaller scale--practice in a way that lets you fail and correct often. Stay motivated by taking a genuine interest i [...]

      اذا اردت ان تنجح فلا يتعين عليك سوى التدريب ثم التدريب ثم التدريب فحينها ستصبح ناجح ومتمكن وستصل لنقطه لم تتخيل نفسك ستصل اليها ولكن اشحن نفسك بكثير من الطاقه لتدفعك الى الاستمرار في التدريب وتذكر دائما انه من الجيد لك ان تخفق

      *Talent de-coded*Now, if this book isn't a display of remarkable talent, I don't know what is!Not only does Daniel Coyle de-code talent, but he uses his own to brilliantly weave the story behind greatness. Clearly, he's honed his writing talent. (And, after reading this book, you'll understand the neurological processes enabling that growth!)The book tells the story of the three components of the talent-code: deep practice, ignition, and master coaching. The protagonist of the talent story is my [...]

    15. David says:

      The thesis of this excellent book is that talent is developed by the right kind of practice. This practice repeatedly fires the correct neurons, which develops the myelin sheaths that surround these neurons; a positive feedback ensues, further strengthening the neuron connections. Brute repetition is not the type of practice that the author recommends; he discusses a "deep" practice that breaks down a complex skill into component parts, and repeats the parts until they become perfect and ingrain [...]

      خیلی خوب بود

    17. Konnie says:

      What a fascinating read! Daniel Coyle spent two years visiting talent "hotbeds," like Brazil with it's soccer factory, Russia's tennis training ground, and the Z-Boys in California. He studied the practicing, the coaches, and the environmental factors that contribute to these bundles of genius or greatness. He connects what he finds to the latest research and conclusions about how skills and talent grow at the brain level. His conclusions about growing talent are widely applicable, and the many [...]

    19. Andrea says:

      Interesting and fast read. Touches on some of the same studies as other books of this type, and is a bit extroverted biased, but takes an interesting look at the role of myelin in creating talent, i.e. how forming the myelin coating on our neurons, we develop our talents, and thus the oft cited 10,000 hours mark to reach mastery at something - it takes 10,000 hours to fully develop a thick coating of myelin, and the thicker the coating, the faster the synapses fire, and the more ingrained a skil [...]

    20. Kevin says:

      An eye opener. Greatness is not born, it's grown. Great talents are cultivated in a step by step way. The book teaches you about 'deep practice', the way to help grow myelin, the substance that acts as an insulation around your neuron fibers to make them act like broadband circuits. Myelin coating helps build up your character, your skills and sharpen your talents. The author gives interesting examples to illustrate this point, picking sample personalities from fields of arts, music, soccer, bas [...]

    21. Jeana says:

      This book was recommended to me by Bianca's viola teacher. It's a great book that makes you rethink the way we perceive "naturals" or people born with "talent." I learned so much about "deep practice" and the way that's best to encourage kids with our words ("I can tell you're working so hard" as opposed to "sounds good"). I really think every parent should read this book. It's not that a person has a knack for something to be good at it. It opens up the world to anyone willing to work hard, pai [...]

    22. Álvaro Arbonés says:

      Cuando daba clases de diseño de videojuegos, siempre insistía en una cosa: el talento no existe. Existen marcos mentales. Existe motivación. También existe la práctica, el interés y la actitud. Y por supuesto, trabajo duro. Porque la única diferencia entre alguien con talento y alguien sin él es cuan duro necesitan trabajar para llegar hasta cierto punto. Daniel Coyle ha venido a confirmar mis tesis. Con sus necesarias dosis de neurociencia por el camino, The Talent Code es un trabajo pe [...]

    23. Rick Davis says:

      The premise of this book is interesting, and I enjoyed learning about myelin. I think that there are some good ideas about techniques for practicing and perfecting skills as well. However, the writing is kind of all over the place. (I can only take so many mixed metaphors.) Also the application in the last couple of chapters and the epilogue shows the tendency to favor skill building as an end in itself in opposition to theory. This sort of results-oriented, pragmatic approach generally rubs me [...]

    24. John de' Medici says:

      This one kept popping up in many of my favorite reads, thought it was about time I went through it.Overall, I found it a delightfully insightful read.In it, the author visits several talent hotbeds across different fields in an attempt to uncover what can be learnt about talent and what it means to be talented

    25. Nathan Moore says:

      Coyle's premise is that the notion that people are born with natural talents is a myth. Talents are developed by hard work and deep practice. Coyle argues that the development of skills can be traced to the development of myelin, a wrapping of insulation around our neurons. The thicker the myelin, the more efficient the circuit.“All skills, all language, all music, all movements, are made of living circuits, and all circuits grow according to certain rules.”(The Talent Code, pg 6)To develop [...]

    26. Brad Revell says:

      We all have various definitions and theories on what talent really is. Coyle sees talent as the combination of deep practice, ignition and master coaching; this builds myelin which is the major focus of this book. In most articles or books I have read, the nervous system focuses on the synapse. Think of a synapse as the connection between the nerves and myelin as the insulation around the nerve. The greater the insulation around the nerve the more effective you can fire it and the faster it will [...]

    28. Bill says:

      In “The Talent Code”, Daniel Coyle argues that talent isn’t necessarily something you are born with, but rather something that can be cultivated through practice practice practice. He traveled the world to visit “talent hotbeds” that have a reputation for consistently cranking out extraordinary talent and attempts to find a common denominator in their activities. Bottom line – you can get really good at something if you practice intensely and often – “deep practice” as he calls [...]

    29. Elizabeth (Elzburg) says:

      I think that The Talent Code is a book that should be read by everyone who is a current or aspiring coach/teacher. It's a book full of scientifically backed and field-tested information on the cultivation of skill. Now, if you’re not interested in being able to effectively pass these concepts onto others (aka you’re not a coach/teacher) then this book will also be useful to you, because the science is self-applicable. It's just that it's also extremely useful information for people in those [...]
