I'm listening to David Shenk's great book right now. I love it! I've read Malcolm Gladwell's book and "Talent is Overrated", and while this covers similar ground, it is presented in a way that kept me very engaged. I love that Mr.Shenk started out with a Ted Williams story as it helped me to share this material with my 18 year old son who is struggling on his varsity baseball team.
