Daniel Coyle, author of the international best sellers “The Talent Code”

Daniel Coyle is the author of The Talent Code, sub-titled ‘Greatness isn’t Born, It’s Grown, Here’s How’. David Epstein wrote The Sports Gene (‘Inside the Science of Extraordinary Performance’), which seemed fundamentally at odds with Coyle.

  • Quality of coaching
  • Genes
  • Motivation/mindset
