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, best-selling 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)
