Description

Mozart wasn't born with perfect pitch. Most athletes are not born with any natural advantage. Three world-class chess players were sisters whose success was planned by their parents before they were even born.

Anders Ericsson has spent 30 years studying the special ones - the geniuses, sports stars and musical prodigies. And his remarkable finding, revealed in Peak, is that their special abilities are acquired through training. The innate 'gift' of talent is a myth. Exceptional individuals are born with just one unique ability, shared by us all - the ability to develop our brains and bodies through our own efforts.

Anders Ericsson's research was the inspiration for the popular '10,000-hour rule', but, he tells us, this rule is only the beginning of the story. It's not just the hours that are important but how you use them. We all have the seeds of excellence within us - it's merely a question of how to make them grow.

With a bit of guidance, you'll be amazed at what the average person can achieve. The astonishing stories in Peak prove that potential is what you make it.

Excellent book

I am inspired to deliberately practice until I reach the level of mastery. I recommend this book.

Scientific approach to skills learning

Nice book if you like to understand what's behind what you see. The author brings a scientific description of how we work as humans and how our brain works. the description is accompanied by concrete examples that make you look at the world differently and are also good for your general culture

Life changing

I loved it. I've been applying deliberate practice without knowing it in some fields, and it definitely is the best definitive way to learn stuff. Now that I consciously know about it, I've started applying it with (already) great results.
This book has really the potential to change the lens through which you see the world and I've found it greatly motivating to say the least.
The narrator is also amazing and has made the whole experience very pleasurable.

disappointing

This book is far too long for it's content. At some point it just gets kind of tedious to listen to as it tries too explain the same point as before in an almost identical way without using any kind of refreshing anecdotes. The book basically stresses two points. One: you are not born with skill or talent so anyone can gain equal expertise. Two: deliberate practice is the way to achieve it. Here deliberate practice is what is sounds like: practicing with the goal to improve with clear feedback. If you accept these two points there is little left to gain from reading this book.

Haven't found the secrets yet.

What was most disappointing about Anders Ericsson and Robert Pool ’s story?

This book was sold as a scroll of truth - the secrets for how to do deliberate practice. I've gotten a couple of hours into it now, and all I can see are success stories. Stories claiming that deliberate practice works, and why deliberate practice is more impactful than you might think. This is fine and for the first 30-60 minutes I really enjoyed it. But I only enjoyed it because I thought they were a pretext for the wisdom to come. How do you set up a deliberate practice session?What are the experiences of a seasoned practitioner?What are the pitfalls? What are the areas that really gives a return on your investment of time, sweat and effort?But nothing so far.I'm returning the book. A huge disappointment from someone that probably had a lot of experience to share.

Great insights and grand plans

Great narrator, science backed information and visions for the future. I recommend it to anyone wishing to better themselves and the ones around them.

Long but necessary...

This was a great listen!... I really learned a lot from the contents of the book... the theme is a simple one but how many of us believe it?... that, is the very reason that the authors time and again made the statement about how deliberate practice trumps talent, opportunity etc... talent is over rated... yes, the authors do talk about deliberate practice in many different variations... but that is needed... I’m truly a believer of this beautiful theme proposed by the author... and the narrator did a superb job... hats off to the team!... please read this book if you want to get a feel about how to excel in almost ANYTHING!!!

Miserable Audioqualität

Ich weiß nicht, wann Audible endlich ausländische Produktionen in hoher Audioqualität anbietet. Dieses Hörbuch wäre perfekt, wenn Audible nicht am Ende der Produktion die Datei derart komprimiert, dass man das Gefühl hat, man hört dem Sprecher über ein Telefon zu. Audible.com ist auch noch so dreist und preist diese Audioqualität mit "enhanced" an. Wirklich schade, dass die Leistung eines professionellen Sprechers in einem professionellen Aufnahmestudio so relativiert wird, weil man womöglich etwas Speicherplatz auf irgendwelchen Servern sparen will.

one simple thought, and problem with logic

there is one simple thought in the book: deliberate work on something will bring results more than any talent or whatever else.


author ha problem with logic. I hope he is not scientist and his income doesn't depend on it. when he talks about the jumper from new Zealand, and he wants to prove that it was due to deliver are practice and not due to talent. the whole prove is , look how much he improved, so it must be deliberate practice. really? this is your prove? the jumper didn't improve in his later years, so it is most certainly deliberate practice. even though I agree with the thesis, it just makes me angry how author uses the initial thesis, which he wants to prove, as an argument to prove itself.

Ein sehr praxisorientiertes Buch!

Hilft jedem, der nach Methoden sucht um effizienter lernen zu können. Kann ich nur empfehlen.
