A Nice Article About Anders Ericsson

The Australian has an excellent profile of Anders Ericsson, a psychology professor and Freakonomics favorite who has done seminal research on talent.
I had the pleasure of getting to know Ericsson well when we both spent a year visiting Stanford’s Center for the Advanced Study of Behavioral Sciences six or seven years ago. His research was the inspiration for the most popular New York Times column that Dubner and I ever wrote, “A Star is Made.” Ericsson’s work also plays a large role in Macolm Gladwell‘s book Outliers.
