Talent Code & Deep Practice Specialist Daniel Coyle

Daniel_Coyle_Talent_Code_1This week we’ve got one of our very favorites back for a second visit  Daniel Coyle, author of The Talent Code, The Little Book of Talent, co-author of The Secret Race and several other excellent books about the sporting life.

The previous interview with Daniel was released on April 19th, 2013 and it’s still available for download on the website and on Apple iTunes.

This time around we talk deeply about, what else? Deep practice! Plus we explore some soccer and cycling themes and get a bit of a preview of the book Daniel is currently working on, which will be of huge interest to sports coaches and administrators.

And we’d be grateful if you’d leave a short review of the show on the Apple iTunes page.
