A simple list of must-read books if you’re interested in performance and improvement for self and others.
By no means complete, there are many many others
Carol Dweck- Mindset
“Dweck reveals what all great parents, teachers, CEOs, and athletes already know: how a simple idea about the brain can create a love of learning and a resilience that is the basis of great accomplishment in every area.”
Matthew Syed – Bounce
‘I love this book. A must-read if you have ever wondered what sets the super-achievers and the rest of us apart – in any field, not just in sport. I only wish I had read it when I was fifteen.’ Gabby Logan, BBC presenter and former international gymnast
Daniel Coyle – The Talent Code

Daniel Coyle – The Little Book Of Talent
“The Little Book of Talent” should be given to every graduate at commencement, every new parent in a delivery room, every executive on the first day of work. It is a guidebook–beautiful in its simplicity and backed by hard science–for nurturing excellence.”—Charles Duhigg, bestselling author of “The Power of Habit”
Malcolm Gladwell – Outliers
