A Powerful new approach to mastering almost any skill, Anders Ericsson is the world's reigning expert on expertise. Peak distills three decades of myth-shattering research into a powerful learning strategy that is fundamentally different from the way people traditionally drink about acquiring new abilities. Ericsson's findings prove that all of us have the seeds of excellence within us - it's just a question of nurturing them properly. Peak offers invaluable, often counterintuitive, advice on setting goals, getting feedback, identifying patterns, and motivating yourself. Ericsson's revolutionary methods will show you how to improve almost any skill that matters to you. Peak offers more than just practical guidance, though. It demystifies the feats of many outstanding performers, from musical virtuosos to entrepreneurs. And it shows us a convincing new view of the enormous potential we all possess. Book jacket.
