3 out of 5 (1 rating)


'A great read and a fascinating insight into performance.' Sir Clive WoodwardWe all want to discover our hidden talents and make an impact with them.

But how? Rasmus Ankersen, an ex-footballer and performance specialist, quit his job and for six intense months lived with the world's best athletes in an attempt to answer this question. Why have the best middle distance runners grown up in the same Ethiopian village?

Why are the leading female golfers from South Korea?

How did one athletic club in Kingston, Jamaica, succeed in producing so many world-class sprinters?

Ankersen presents his surprising conclusions in seven lessons on how anyone - or any business, organisation or team - can defy the many misconceptions of high performance and learn to build their own gold mine of real talent.

Review by

The Gold Mine Effect was an interesting read but could be summed up as "he/she who wants it most will be the one to succeed". It did not take long to read and I enjoyed Rasmus' stories about his travels to the various gold mines of talent locations.
