Descrizione prodotto


‘A gripping examination of the hidden forces that come together in the making of a champion.' Michael Atherton, former England cricket captain

'A fascinating subject and Syed is a dazzling writer.' Owen Slot, The Times

'I love this book. A must-read if you have ever wondered what sets the super-achievers and the rest of us apart – in any field, not just in sport. I only wish I had read it when I was fifteen.' Gabby Logan, BBC presenter and former international gymnast

'Intellectually stimulating and hugely enjoyable at a stroke … challenged some of my most cherished beliefs about life and success.' Jonathan Edwards, triple jump world record holder

Dalla quarta di copertina



What is the magic spark that sees David Beckham and Tiger Woods soar above all their competitors, and could the secret lie in the practice regime of Mozart? Matthew Syed's dazzling investigation of high achievement draws on the stories of sports stars and the most up-to-date science to uncover the surprising factors that lead to world beating success. Along the way he explains why the most successful figure skaters are those that have fallen over the most, how a Hungarian father turned his daughters into three of the best chess players the world has ever seen, and why one small street in Reading - Matthew's own - produced more top table tennis players than the rest of Britain put together. Bounce will revolutionise our ideas of what it takes to get to the top.

5.0 su 5 stelle More useful than Outliers 14 agosto 2012
Di TMA - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
It's hard to resist comparing this book to Malcolm Gladwell's The Outliers. In The Outliers Gladwell helped spread the fame of the work of Anders Ericsson, FSU expert on how people acquire expert intelligence. Indeed, the phrase "10,000 hours" is now so ubiquitous it has become a cliche, although people often forget that it refers not just to practice but to STRUCTURED practice.

While The Outliers excels in its writing and infotainment value, Bounce seems more instructive. It's hard to finish Bounce and not feel like there is a lot more you could do if you just applied yourself. Syed mixes personal experience, anecdotes of others, and empirical data to hammer home the point that living with a "growth" mindset is richly rewarding.

Syed does an excellent job of explaining how some people continue to reach new thresholds in their pursuits while many others plateau early. I often give this book as a gift to nieces, nephews, and friends' children who are entering college, telling them I wish I could have read (and believed) this book when I was their age.

5.0 su 5 stelle one of the most important books I've read 19 giugno 2010
Di Just Me - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina rigida Recensione Vine di un prodotto gratuito ( Cos'è? )
I read a lot, a lot, and this is one of the most significant books I have read. Anyone striving for high performance, in any field, as well as anyone raising or teaching children should read this book. I've been very interested in reading one of the books which are based, at least to a degree, on the work of Anders Ericsson and purposeful practise being more important than talent you are born with. Reviews of the other books, such as Talent Is Overrated by Geoff Colvin, The Talent Code by Daniel Coyle, and Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell have put me off. Each book seems to take a somewhat different view of the importance of various aspects that have been shown to lead to superior performance -- purposeful practice and opportunity (such as having a good coach available) being the primary aspects. Bounce also delves deep into the psychology of people who persist enough to become superior performers. There are many psychological points, which anyone can develop, which lead to someone bouncing back from difficulty and doing well. With practise being so important to superior performance, you must have persistance or you won't get in the practice.

Highly recommended. I've already given it as a gift and will be giving out more.

5.0 su 5 stelle non-native reader 22 dicembre 2016
Di Kindle Customer - Pubblicato su
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
The book is well written, one might say it reads itself. Moreover, after several months since I read the book, I can safely say it changed my mindset. I have changed the view of my peers, my superiors and myself. I have changed my approach to several aspects of my life (study, work, sports,...). I really love the fact, that author took care with providing lots of references to his claims.

I would further recommend the second book by Mathew Syed Black box thinking. The overlap is very subtle, which is rare in the self-development literature (it's often pointless to read several books by the same author).

In summary, it's fun and full of useful information.

5.0 su 5 stelle Revolutionary! 18 marzo 2013
Di Haydn C. Griffith - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
This book changed the way I looked at learning and improvement. I had never analyzed how we actually learn and improve skills but reading this book helped me to connect the dots between things I had noticed but never examined too deeply and led me to be more analytical in my approach to teaching others, and myself. Malcolm Gladwell's book "Outliers", which is referenced many times, highlighted the theory of 10,000 hours of practice being the requirement to master a particular skill. "Bounce" goes deeper into understanding what it is that is actually being learned during these hours of practice, thereby making it more accessible for readers interested in working on their own mastery of sport, instrument, language or whatever it may be. The book is well written so it flows naturally and is full of examples that perfectly illustrate the point being made.
5.0 su 5 stelle Encouragement for aspiring musicians of any age 5 agosto 2015
Di The Sideman - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
The talent myth pervades our thinking in various forms, e.g., musicians, leaders, etc. are "born--not made." While one should acknowledge the existence of those rare individuals will seemingly superhuman aptitudes, according to the author, most "experts" in whatever field reach the pinnacle through a combination of factors--factors within the reach of mere mortals! This is good news and awfully encouraging to anyone willing to obtain the proper tutelage and engage in "purposeful practice" over the long haul. This book lit a fire under me to develop a plan and "do the time" in purposeful practice in order to master the guitar. Woodshed, here I come!
