"Talent Identification and Development - The Search For Sporting Excellence" presents a series of articles exploring the field of talent identification and development. The book reflects multi-disciplinary and applied principles on which the Perspectives series are based.

 

The content is divided into two sections: The first is looking at disciplinary approaches and the second is dealing with themes and models.
