We re-broadcast an interview with Daniel Coyle about his book The Talent Code, which discusses how talent is grown from deep practice. He is also the author of the bestseller Lance Armstrong's War and Hardball: A Season in the Projects.

We also speak with Luke Sullivan about his memoir Thirty Rooms to Hide In: Insanity, Addiction and Rock 'n' Roll in the Shadow of the Mayo Clinic, which tells the story of how his father descended from being one of the world's top orthopedic surgeons into an abusive, addicted madman.
