Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Talent or Hard Work? Syed proves the latter always wins out. Hours and hours of practice go into all human endeavours; especially those in the domain of the genius. From painting to ping pong to music to fire fighting he illustrates that our brain is capable of creating mastery only after we put in the work. A great scientifically backed book.
