Not specifically about investing - though Warren Buffett is a recurring example that they use - but definitely useful to those who want to become better at investing (and to do that, you need to understand how one becomes better).

 

The concept of 'deliberate practice' is definitely useful. I knew a lot of this, but they give an overview of interesting studies, and as usual, it's always good to reinforce mental models and get motivation from external sources.

 

I haven't finished the book yet, but so far (70 pages in) it's interesting and well-written.

I just finished the book. It was surprisingly good. I expected maybe a few useful ideas to add to a mental model, but not much... It turned out to be well argued, well written, and very motivating. A good companion to Waitzkin's The Art of Learning.
