Right now, I'm reading Peak by Anders Ericsson. It's on how people become experts at what they do. I first heard it on the Freakonomics podcast and thought it sounded interesting - so when I came back, I borrowed a copy from the library.
"The deliberate-practice mindset offers a very different view: anyone can improve, but it requires the right approach. If you are not improving, it's not because you lack innate talent; it's because you're not practicing the right way."The teaser may sound dry, but the book is really readable, and I'm really enjoying it.
What about you? What are you reading?
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by Jenn of Books and a Beat. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
- Grab your current read
- Open to a random page
- Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
- BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
- Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
