For book thirty four of 2015, I enjoyed The Talent Code.
What really stuck out to me in this book was the element of Deep Practice. The example I really took to heart was the Air Corps survival rate of their pilots and the qualification method they were using in 1934 as they took on the task of delivering the mail and entered the “Air Mail Disaster.” A review of the failures by leadership and Edwin Link’s creation of the Link Trainer… an aviation simulator.
What this brought to mind was the major failures we have had, and continue to have, in the cybersecurity. There are few cybersecurity simulators to be able to develop great operators and therefore the ability to accomplish Deep Practice remains non-existent.
