Bounce, Matthew Syed

Bounce by Matthew SyedAnother favourite of property investor and businessman Martin Skinner, Bounce: The Myth of Talent and the Power of Practice is inspired by the sporting world. This book examines the subject of success and also delves deeper into neuroscience and psychology to discover the underlying (neuro)biological factors at play.

Which is more important – talent or practice? This is just one of the questions tackled by Matthew Syed, himself a sportsman. We already know that the psychological elements of successful sportspeople can transfer into approaches for other aspects of life (remember The Inner Game of Tennis?), and this is one of the latest studies of the genre.
