This was in informative book, but did not fulfill the implied promise of the subtitle. I'd hoped to find cognitive strategies to apply to my lifelong study of the guitar, but not much of use in that area, just background info. As an experienced musician, I found 5 or 6 valuable insights, but nothing Earth-shattering. For example, he spends a page providing an alternative insight to Gladwell's Outliers, indicating that talent does exist. To be fair, much of the information in the book I've read elsewhere, such as in Outliers, and the book would likely be more valuable for beginner musicians.
