Book Review: Bounce by Mathew Syed

I am just finishing reading for the second time the book " Bounce " by Mathew Syed. I got this book from early last year. It deals with the science of success. What would be of particular interest to dart players are the sections of the book that deal with practice and the myth of talent. No one is born with more talent that any other to be a great musician or to be a great chess player it is more to do with how many hours of dedicated practise according to scientific research. There is a chapter on choking dealing with why and how it happens. It is the best explanation I have read. If you are interested in improving your level of performance in any field and coping better with pressure and even thriving on that pressure to produce the optimum performance I highly recommend it.
