Before reading this book I had read several others books that were derived from or at least influenced by Ericsson s research They are listed at the end of this review Perhaps just as importantly I have also read biographies of great achievers who ve reached the pinnacle of their areas of endeavor From that I hope to formulate a uniue perspective about this book These are also listed at the end of this reviewI mention this because it enables me to speak from my own experience findings from a wide cross section of researchers and most importantly I hope the biographies of how people achieved greatness My Own Story Around ten years ago was when I first read Ericsson s academic paper on The Role of Deliberate Practice in the Acuisition of Expert Performance A colleague of mine at the time told me that he used its principles to train his son in baseball and that it was instrumental getting his son a baseball scholarshipI didn t think about it much at that timeSeven years later I decided to teach myself to play piano as a side hobby Initially I was a textbook case of doing everything wrong in that I would merely learn by repeating the same phrases over and over again until I reached a point of acceptable mediocrity What that meant is that I could play well in enough amuse myself but was nowhere near good enough play in publicFrustrated I remembered what I had learned years ago from Ericsson s published research From the books mentioned below I learned about deliberate practice techniues At the risk of oversimplification I learned that in my case super slow but perfect execution is better than normal speed with mistakes Indeed that is how they teach even the most gifted prodigies at JulliardI now play pretty wellThat said people are not naturally inclined to do that Deliberate practice does not feel good It is not intuitive It feels awkward and is the antithesis of what attracted me to the piano ie FUN I do not think I would be practicing in this manner if it had not been for Ericcson s research that has now been widely disseminated Plus its principles have bled over into my performance in my business and other areas of my lifeSo I am a huge proponent of Ericsson s research But I think Ericsson is far from being able to disprove that natural talent derived from the gene pool is not a significant factor in the success in any area of endeavorFor one thing the small sample size of individuals whose brilliance he explains being purely the result of deliberate practice is small There s the Polgar Sisters Mozart Paganini and a few others Plus the case he makes about Mozart is far from being proofThere are far too many well documented instances where we hear very young children of apparently normal parents whose genius that cannot be explained other than by genetic lotteryWhen I read the biographies of folks like Warren Buffett Elon Musk Jeff Bezos Steve Jobs it s commonplace that I see some edge by way of their parents andor education or gene pool that has nothing to do with deliberate practiceElon Musk had intelligent somewhat offbeat parents and was beat up a few times in school That can be said of many kids however None of this remotely explains the Elon Musk we see todayAndre Agassi s father played a strong role in this success as a tennis pro I would say he s a beneficiary principles taught in Ericsson s book However it s hard to say it s the only factorBruce Springsteen had no role model or guidance He liked Elvis and wanted to be like him His natural talent got him thereThere was nothing remarkable about Jeff Bezo s childhood He did not have any edge other than that which was innate But his business smarts was evident on Wall Street before he founded Before Arnold Schwarzenegger became a movie star was already successful in real estate It was due to his prowess in math and the ability to make projections in his head about how much houses would be worth after they were fixed up Nothing in his childhood foreshadowed his successEinstein Well that is another case in which he had no special training or advantage when he was as a child 45 Stars if that was possible What Ericsson gets right is far important than what is subject to debateThe bottom line is this in the absence a nurturing environment or generous genetic endowment deliberate practice is one thing that can go a long way to leveling the playing fieldHere are books I ve read that prior to Ericsson s book that are related to his findings on deliberate practice

    [PDF] Peak: Secrets from the New Science of Expertise This is a straight to the point book, describing how deliberate practice can make you successful in any area of your life. This book is easy to read, but it is also "meaty", with many actionable ideas. I especially like that this book is very research based (the authors give you the science behind the ideas they present). The only issue with this book, like any self help book, is actually implementing the strategies in your own
