Bounce: Mozart, Federer, Picasso, Beckham, and the&hellip by Matthew Syed
4.0 out of 5 stars Bounce isn't a thud, Sept. 29 2011
I like the fact that the author has practical experience in excellence. Occasionally he puts a few too many personal references in the text to hammer home the point, but that's ok. The main thrust that I am finding useful in my coaching life, is the notion of "purposeful practice".

Everyone thinks they work hard, but often they are on autopilot. Getting my athletes to think about things differently is something that I'm working on as a result.

The author through self exploration leads the reader to believe that it truly is mind over matter. I found the book to be well written, although at times a little too centred on the author's experiences. Overall a good read.
