Editorial Reviews

“This is an empowering, encouraging work that will challenge readers to reach for excellence.”

– Publishers Weekly

“[Ericsson] makes a strong case that success in today’s world requires a focus on practical performance, not just the accumulation of information. Especially informative for parents and educators in preparing children for the challenges ahead.”

– Kirkus Reviews

“This book is a breakthrough, a lyrical, powerful, science-based narrative that actually shows us how to get better (much better) at the things we care about.”

– Seth Godin, author of Linchpin
