BACK TO LISTING Bounce: The Myth of Talent and The Power of Practice

Just what does it take to be the best? What is the hidden logic of success that shapes the careers of world-beaters like David Beckham and Serena Williams, and creative successes like Mozart and Picasso?

Matthew explains why some people thrive under pressure and others choke, He weighs the value of innate ability against that of practice, hard work and will. From sex to maths, from the motivation of children to the culture of big business, Bounce shows how competition provides a master key with which to unlock the mysteries of success.

“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 & former international gymnast

“Intellectually stimulating and hugely enjoyable at a stroke…challenged some of my most cherished beliefs about life and success.”
Jonathan Edwards, Triple Jump World Record Holder
