Book review: The Talent Code by Daniel Coyle

I read the book Talent Code by Daniel Coyle. It's a book about learning and talent. Talent isn't natural born, it is always learned. There might be some genetic issues that make it easier to learn to become good at something, but after all it is always about learning.

This book is a journey to talent hotbeds, places where talent seem to be grown and at the same time journey to human brain to understand how the talent grows. Daniel Coyle visits quite different places and introduces many interesting people about creating talents. Also he introduces lates findings on how myelin, the white stuff in brain actually makes people to perform better.

The book is easy to read, filled with excellent examples and interesting facts. Even the very technical parts of brain and nervous system is explained in the way that I could understand.

Those who want to learn how to learn, or learn how to teach, this a good book for you. I highly recommend this for parents too. This gives good understanding what are the things that really affect on learning.

It's great book, about interesting and important subject. I loved the book and I bet many other would also.
