This book looks at adjusting how we teach and learn. It leads off by talking about John Wooden. So ... they had me at hello. Lots of notes on this one. As I make my way towards wanting to teach, I will be re-visiting this book. It explores the idea that practice--not games--makes champions, presents "how to" rules for improvement in virtually every performance of life, covering such topics as rethinking practice, using feedback, and making new skills stick. Not just for educators.
