Reviews

A brilliant book. A must read for anyone involved in any high performance business. The Talent Lab is a fascinating insight into the success of Team GB in London 2012 and Rio 2016. Owen Slot gets to go behind the scenes to show emphatically "what, why and how" this was achieved. There is no doubt this will be a bestseller in the UK but also worldwide as the rest try to find the secret to Team GB's amazing turnaround. * Sir Clive Woodward *
