Synopsis

'Anyone who wants to get better at anything should read Peak.' Fortune

Do you want to stand out at work, improve your athletic or musical performance, or help your child achieve academic goals?

Anders Ericsson has made a career studying chess champions, violin virtuosos, star athletes, and memory mavens. Peak distils 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. Ericsson's revolutionary methods will show you how to improve at almost any skill that matters to you, and that you don't have to be a genius to achieve extraordinary things.

'Remarkable...who among us doesn't want to learn how to get better at life?' Stephen J. Dubner, co-author of Freakonomics

'This book...could truly change the world' Joshua Foer, author of Moonwalking with Einstein
