Overview

'A great read and a fascinating insight into performance.' Sir Clive Woodward

'This is a must-read for any athlete or sportsperson looking to reach for the stars.' Athletics Weekly

We all want to discover our hidden talents and make an impact with them. But how?

Rasmus Ankersen, an ex-footballer and performance specialist, quit his job and for six intense months lived with the world's best athletes in an attempt to answer this question.

Why have the best middle distance runners grown up in the same Ethiopian village? Why are the leading female golfers from South Korea? How did one athletic club in Kingston, Jamaica, succeed in producing so many world-class sprinters?

Ankersen presents his surprising conclusions in seven lessons on how anyone - or any business, organisation or team - can defy the many misconceptions of high performance and learn to build their own gold mine of real talent.
