Product Description:
“This book is a breakthrough, a lyrical, powerful, science-based narrative that actually shows us how to get better (much better) at the things we care about.”—Seth Godin, author of Linchpin

“Anyone who wants to get better at anything should read [Peak]. Rest assured that the book is not mere theory. Ericsson’s research focuses on the real world, and he explains in detail, with examples, how all of us can apply the principles of great performance in our work or in any other part of our lives.”—Fortune


Anders Ericsson has made a career studying chess champions, violin virtuosos, star athletes, and memory mavens. Peak distills three decades of myth-shattering research into a powerful learning strategy that is fundamentally different from the way people traditionally think about acquiring new abilities. Whether you want to stand out at work, improve your athletic or musical performance, or help your child achieve academic goals, Ericsson’s revolutionary methods will show you how to improve at almost any skill that matters to you.
 
“The science of excellence can be divided into two eras: before Ericsson and after Ericsson. His groundbreaking work, captured in this brilliantly useful book, provides us with a blueprint for achieving the most important and life-changing work possible: to become a little bit better each day.”—Dan Coyle, author of The Talent Code
 

“Ericsson’s research has revolutionized how we think about human achievement. If everyone would take the lessons of this book to heart, it could truly change the world.”—Joshua Foer, author of Moonwalking with Einstein

Product Description:
Have you ever wondered what it must be like to be part of the pit crew during a crucial Formula 1 tyre change? Have you dreamt of what it must be like to be allowed inside the F1 paddock or inside one of the ultra-high technology factories that produces Formula 1 cars? If you have then you are not alone. Formula 1 is full of glamorous, high octane thrills and anyone who has a passion for speed will understandably want to get close to the action. The danger, noise, speed and competition are an adrenaline buzz which makes a Grand Prix Sunday afternoon compulsive viewing for Formula 1 fans. Imagining yourself on the grid and taking part in the action is all part of the lure that makes the sport so attractive. These fantasies may excite but sadly they are experiences that few fans will ever get to fulfil. This privilege is usually the reserve of the sponsors, team owners and the mechanics and engineers who work for Formula 1 teams. The unique thing about Formula 1 however, is that you don't need to be rich and famous to take part. The television cameras might follow the movie stars and glittering celebrities but walking amongst them are some very ordinary people who just happen to have extraordinary jobs. I should know because I am one of them. Richard Ladbrooke is a degree qualified engineer who has worked in Formula 1 and other forms of motor racing both in the UK and America for nearly two decades. He has seen top level motorsport from both the winner's podium and from the back of the grid. "How To Get A Job In Grand Prix Racing" is his unique guide showing how anyone can make a career in this most glamorous of global sports. Through this book he shows you step by step how you can break down the barriers to Grand Prix racing and share in the excitement at the heart of the world's fastest sport. Richard opens the door to the inner workings of the industry, the people behind the scenes and shows you the skills, experience and know-how that you need to become a Grand Prix winner. Through the unique perspective of his own fictional F1 team, Ladbrooke F1, Richard describes in detail the different functions and job roles that make up a typical Formula 1 team and encourages you make informed choices about what part of the team you would most like to work in. He shares his own personal experience of growing up with no background in motorsport, the mistakes he made along the way and how he finally got the breakthrough to his first job in racing. This book will guide you through school, college and university, showing you how to spot crucial opportunities that others miss. Richard emphasises the importance of getting involved outside of the classroom and shares with you the most recognised extracurricular schemes and initiatives that will help you get on the racing ladder. Anyone can make it in Formula 1 and this book will motivate you, guide you and push you to achieve your potential. Understanding Formula 1 from the inside is crucial and the truth behind this often secretive and technological world is revealed here for you to learn, understand and be a part of. With a host of links to other online resources including Richard's own popular blog about working in Formula 1, this is the most comprehensive guide of its type. Welcome to the start line for your very own career in motorsport.
