Talent is Overrated

Talent is Overrated by Geoff Colvin.  This book was excellent, I checked it out at our local library but I will definitely be buying it to add to my own collection.  It examines what separates some of the most extraordinary people in their fields from those who simply do well: deliberate practice.  If you’ve read The Talent Code or Outliers, you’ll already be familiar with many of the concepts but it does provide a different viewpoint.  His arguments are presented well with evidence to back them up and the stories are inspiring.
