  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Victoria | 2/17/2014

    " Very useful and applicable. I need to buy a copy for myself for future reference. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Prabhat | 2/9/2014

    " Fast read... with crisp, useful tips! Real good stuff in small pack! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather Preston | 2/5/2014

    " A distillation of insights learned by the author, Dan Coyle in his research for his book, The Talent Code: Unlocking the Secret of Skill in Sports, Art, Music, Math, and Just About Everything Else. I listened to the audio book, so it's a little hard to go back and get specifics, but I think if I had the print edition I'd refer back to it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amber | 1/21/2014

    " Only on page 19 of "The Little Book of Talent: 52 Tips for Improving Your Skills," and I am already finding this book very interesting. It has already provided me with useful information that I am putting into practice. I am really looking forward to what else this book has to offer as I continue to read it, and put what I am reading into action so I can improve various skills. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dan Shaw | 1/8/2014

    " Aside from the fact that the edition I read was an advance copy, thus there were more than a few grammatical errors, the sheer style of Coyle's writing was just substandard; or at least fell short of my personal standards for self help books. Having not read any of the author's previous works, nor having much preparation for this book, I wasn't overly skeptical at the onset. In actuality, many of his tips were insightful, though it consistantly references studies and people and fails to cite sources. Aditionally, Daniel Coyle too often uses the word "hotbed" yet never fully explains what this word means in various contexts. I won't advise readers to steer clear of this guide, and perhaps you may find it much more envigorating and applicable than I, yet I will surmise that I didn't love it and would be surprised if it were to be on a bestsellers list anytime soon. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anna Berendzen | 11/29/2013

    " Hot tip: Practicing a skill three times, with 10-minute breaks in between, is more effective than one big chunk of practice. Lots of other great ideas on improving talent in this re-readable book. "
