Praise for The Little Book of Talent

" The Little Book of Talent should be given to every graduate at commencement, every new parent in a delivery room, every executive on the first day of work. It is a guidebook--beautiful in its simplicity and backed by hard science--for nurturing excellence." --Charles Duhigg, bestselling author of The Power of Habit

"It's so juvenile to throw around hyperbolic terms such as 'life-changing,' but there's no other way to describe The Little Book of Talent . I was avidly trying new things within the first half hour of reading it and haven't stopped since. Brilliant. And yes: life-changing." --Tom Peters, co-author of In Search of Excellence

very good, practical advice in this tiny volume. It took me about an hour to finish; I suggest reading with pen in hand and notebook in place to really concretize the ideas in here.
