Description du livre Peak: Secrets from the New Science of Expertise (2022):
“Anyone who wants to get better at anything should read [Peak]. Rest assured that the book is not mere theory. Ericsson’s research focuses on the real world, and he explains in detail, with examples, how all of us can apply the principles of great performance in our work or in any other part of our lives.”—Fortune
Anders Ericsson has made a career studying chess champions, violin virtuosos, star athletes, and memory mavens. Peak distills three decades of myth-shattering research into a powerful learning strategy that is fundamentally different from the way people traditionally think about acquiring new abilities. Whether you want to stand out at work, improve your athletic or musical performance, or help your child achieve academic goals, Ericsson’s revolutionary methods will show you how to improve at almost any skill that matters to you.
“The science of excellence can be divided into two eras: before Ericsson and after Ericsson. His groundbreaking work, captured in this brilliantly useful book, provides us with a blueprint for achieving the most important and life-changing work possible: to become a little bit better each day.”—Dan Coyle, author of The Talent Code
“Ericsson’s research has revolutionized how we think about human achievement. If everyone would take the lessons of this book to heart, it could truly change the world.”—Joshua Foer, author of Moonwalking with Einstein
I would have liked more technical details on deliberate practice. A lot of the book is about convincing readers that mental and physical abilities are highly adaptable even for adults. I was searching for more details on how to implement deliberate practice in details. The principles are well explained and very applicable to any activity. For example when you practice music the point is not to play for 1 hour music but rather setting a goal of succeeding 3 times in a row a piece of music. Which is a very practical way to set objectives. I would have liked more of these details rather than the scientific evidence to convince me. I am already convinced that human potential is huge and not really tapped into.
