Ting journey about the brain from the perspective of human performance and movementThe people stories progress of the science and the applications to human performance were interwoven very well throughoutWorth the read Book was okay It s a neat wrap up of what really is a future in sports to understand the nervous system and it s control of movement Felt at times though like words were being written because they were in an anatomy book as opposed to actually understanding the synthesized material and communicating to a lay audience There were some good parts but also bounced around and tough to follow at times Thank you Mark Cuban for bringing this treasure to my attention It was great to hear from Mark on CC Sabathia s most recent podcast that this was the book that he was currently reading I bought the book based on that recommendation as it is great to understand what the leaders in the industry are reading and thinking about As Mark understands better than anyone it is xtremely important to innovate or you will be left behind and this book gives us insight into the next great innovation in sports.

I use this book as a reference for my own research Really Revived enjoyed this As someone who is interested in innovation and whonjoys sports I greatly appreciated the look into how the leading Student Research Projects in Calculus edge of neuroscience analysis is being used in baseball In many ways Moneyball analytics have already permeated sports and business this makes clear we re at the beginning of the ability to have so much insight into what drives performance It s a book I ve been sharing around the office too As a sports fan I m always wondering how d they do that Finally a book thatxplains all aspects of performance from sports to music and dance and does so in a way that is asily digestible and ntertaining Great read Zach has an amazing writing style as he makes this most interesting adventure following two neuroscientists accessible asy to follow and fun Combine that with finding answers to uestions that you always ask yourself how does someone with the body frame of Altube win the mvp How does the best athlete of our time Michael Jordan not be able to play baseball at a professional level Truly a must read for very sports fa.
