Skill Mastery & Peak Performance through Deliberate Practice with Psychologist Anders Ericsson


Anders Ericsson, author of the book "Peak: Secrets from the New Science of Expertise". He is among the world's leading authorities on how to new master skills. Anders conducted much of the research on expertise and peak performance that Malcolm Gladwell famously referenced to develop the 10,000 hour rule. Anders demonstrates that talent is overrated and peak achievement is dependent on a specific type of learning called "deliberate practice". We explore the science of learning and of skill mastery.
