Bounce: Mozart, Federer, Picasso, Beckham, and the Science of Success (P.S.) Syed, M. Harper Perennial; Reprint edition (May 3, 2011)
Very well written book that describes how focused practice and repetition are far more important than innate talent as determinants of human excellence. Syed is a former Olympic table tennis player who uses many sports and non-sports examples to support and illustrate his thinking.
Not all the information is new (Nurture Shock, Outliers touch many of the same topics), but Syed builds his case in a precise and entertaining way.
The chapter on the psychology of choking is worth the price of the book by itself if you have ever suddenly lost your ability to perform a complex activity and would like to understand why it happens.
