In his incisive 2009 book IThe Talent Code/I, award-winning journalist Daniel Coyle drew on cutting-edge research to reveal that, far from being some abstract mystical power fixed at birth, talent really can be created and nurtured. In order to do so he travelled over 50,000 miles visiting hotbeds of talent, from an inner-city American school with scant resources but astounding maths results to the run-down Moscow tennis club that has produced more female tennis stars over the past five years than the entire United States. The book has since become required reading at a number of leading universities, academies and sports teams. IThe Little Book of Talent/I picks up where IThe Talent Code/I left off: having shown that talent is something we can all harness and augment, Daniel Coyle now turns his attention to the ingenious little ways in which we can guarantee increasingly high levels of accomplishment. In 52 memorable but often counterintuitive rules - from 'Steal' and 'Struggle' to 'Aim for a Great Five Minutes' - he offers practical advice, gleaned from the professionals, that will empower even the most cynical reader to achieve great things. Inspired by the wisdom of ordinary teachers, coaches and businesspeople and backed up by the likes of Einstein, Mozart and Roger Federer, IThe Little Book of Talent/I is neither a science book nor meaningless words of 'motivation', but rather a level-headed how-to for anyone who's ever tried to improve: a construction manual for your brain.

Daniel Coyle is a contributing editor for Outside magazine and the author of three books, including the New York Times bestseller, Lance Armstrong's War. Coyle lives with his wife, Jen, and their four children in Homer, Alaska.
