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
