      My Favorite Books Local Author Peak: Secrets from the New Science of Expertise Book Signing
      My Favorite Books will host a Book Signing on Saturday, September 16 from noon to 2PM for the authors of Peak: Secrets from the New Science of Expertise. K. Anders Ericsson, Ph.D. and world-renowned science and technology writer, Robert Pool, Ph.D., outline a powerful new approach to mastering almost any skill in this book.

      Anders and Pool “team up to present a powerful new approach to mastering almost any skill.

      Have you ever wanted to learn a language or pick up an instrument, only to become daunted by the task at hand? Expert performance guru Anders Ericsson has made a career studying chess champions, violin virtuosos, star athletes, and memory mavens. Peak, the first collaboration between Ericsson and Pool, condenses three decades of original research to introduce an incredibly powerful approach to learning that is fundamentally different from the way people traditionally think about acquiring a skill.

      Ericsson’s findings have been lauded and debated but never properly explained. The idea of expertise still intimidates us — we believe we need innate talent to excel, or think excelling seems prohibitively difficult.

      Peak belies both of these notions, proving that almost all of us have the seeds of excellence within us — it’s just a question of nurturing them by reducing expertise to a discrete series of attainable practices. Peak offers invaluable, often counterintuitive, advice on setting goals, getting feedback, identifying patterns, and motivating yourself. Whether you want to stand out at work, or help your child achieve academic goals, Ericsson’s revolutionary methods will show you how to master nearly anything.”
