I just read this book for a class assignment. I was planning on reading it anyways but I thought it was very enlightening. The ideas are not earth shattering but interesting with the type of context he puts it all in. I truly believe anyone especially youth league coaches should read this book...it really shows the importance of learning the correct way the first time. What I liked about it was it isn't just about athletics but about anything anyone wants to be successful at. I liked the idea of deep practice. A must read if you are a teacher or coach...

There are a few ideas in this book, but it appears to me to be one of those cases where the author had an single idea then forced enough other material in to call it a book.

Some of the arguments just don't make it. Pick and choose examples carefully and you can make any argument. Too bad, I was hoping for more.

Borrow it, read it fast, maybe you can get a little something from it.
