About this book
A completely new perspective on the way in which people acquire skill and talent, arguing that this is not a gift of birth, but something that can be created and nurtured.
'Talent. You've either got it or you haven't'. Not true, actually. This book draws on research to reveal that, far from being some abstract mystical power fixed at birth, ability really can be created and nurtured. It explains what is really going on when apparently unremarkable people suddenly make a major leap forward.
