    I recently attended a teacher's convention, and the keynote speaker was a man named Daniel Coyle. He wrote a book called The Talent Code, he gave me a copy,  and I have been really enjoying it. It is a fascinating read about the neurobiological basis of things that excellent teachers/coaches do instinctively.
    He examined "talent hotbeds" around the world--educational successes--and explains them in terms of the physical brain changes caused by deep practicing and master coaching. I think any teacher/coach would enjoy it.
    No, I have no financial interest in the book :)  

    To keep our faces turned toward change, and behave as free spirits in the presence of fate, that is strength undefeatable--Helen Keller
