Críticas:

"Marcus is one of the smartest psychologists around, a deep thinker and an eloquent writer, and the story he tells is informed by the best science of perception and learning and evolution, talent and effort, genius and frustration and success. If you have ever dreamed of becoming a musician, you simply must read GUITAR ZERO."
--Paul Bloom, author of" How Pleasure Works "

"Captivating and filled with insight, GUITAR ZERO is a look at the challenge of personal reinvention by Gary Marcus, one of our leading psychologists. Whether you are a music lover or not, if you care about reaching your own potential, you should read this book."

--Dr. Drew Pinsky, host, " Dr. Drew, Lifechangers, and Loveline "

"Gary Marcus, one of the deepest thinkers in cognitive science, has given us an entertaining and enlightening memoir, filled with insight about music, learning, and the human mind."

--Steven Pinker, author of"The Better Angels of Our Nature"

"A delightfully inspiring, charming, and detailed musical journey that explodes myths of human limitation, while revealing that the fountain of youth very well may be made of wood and played on six strings."
--Richard Barone, musician, author of" Frontman "

"I enjoyed GUITAR ZERO immensely. Marcus has not only intensified the process itself but simplified the definition of one's dedication to it. His elaborate illustration will certainly cause many of us to better appreciate the gifts we've been blessed with."
--Pat Martino, four-time Grammy nominee

"Guitar Zero is a refreshing alternation between the nitty-gritty details of learning rock-guitar licks and Mr. Marcus's survey of the relevant scientific literature on learning and the brain. For those who look forward, in "retirement," to honoring the lifelong yearnings they have neglected, "Guitar Zero" is good news." "- Wall Street Journal"

"[Guitar Zero] looks far more deeply into the ways our brains rewire themselves and find ways to compensate for certain gaps or deficits in our abilities. In the process of demonstrating these, Marcus sounds an encouraging note (pun intended) for older readers who have always wanted to do something but have never had time." "- Los Angeles Times"

"This enjoyable blend of music appreciation, science and personal exploration commands a new respect for how the brain and body responds to the promise, and shock, of the new." "- Kirkus Reviews"

""Guitar Zero" is a refreshing alternation between the nitty-gritty details of learning rock-guitar licks and Mr. Marcus's survey of the relevant scientific literature on learning and the brain . . . makes some delightful counterintuitive fine points. . . . For those who look forward, in 'retirement, ' to honoring the lifelong yearnings they have neglected, "Guitar Zero" is good news."

--Norman Doidge, "The Wall Street Journal"

"["Guitar Zero" is] the sort of book where Steven Pinker (Dr. Marcus's mentor and collaborator) mixes with K. Anders Ericsson (the psychologist most associated with the '10,000 hours' theory of expertise) and Tom Morello (the lead guitarist from Rage Against the Machine)."

--"The New York Times"

"This book in the end is about more than a desire to shred like Eddie Van Halen. Marcus examines how our brains are affected by creativity--learning a musical instrument, for instance, or a new language--and how these experiences remain open to all of us, no matter our age."

--"Los Angeles Times"

"An entertaining and enlightening memoir, filled with insight about music, learning, and the human mind, by Gary Marcus, one of the deepest thinkers in cognitive science."
--Steven Pinker, bestselling author of"The Better Angels of Our Nature"

"Jimi Hendrix meets Oliver Sacks in this great new science book." VeryShortList.com

Reseña del editor:

Just about every human being knows how to listen to music, but what does it take to make music? Is musicality something we are born with? Or a skill that anyone can develop at any time? If you don't start piano at the age of six, is there any hope? Is skill learning best left to children or can anyone reinvent him-or herself at any time?
For anyone who has ever set out to play a musical instrument or wished that they could Guitar Zero is an inspiring and fascinating look at the pursuit of music, the mechanics of the mind, and the surprising rewards that come from following one s dreams. Gary Marcus, whom Steven Pinker describes as one of the deepest thinkers in cognitive science, debunks the popular theory that there is an innate musical instinct while challenging the idea that talent is only a myth. From deliberate and efficient practicing techniques to finding the right music teacher, Marcus translates his own experience as well as reflections from world-renowned musicians into practical advice for anyone hoping to become musical or learn any new skill."
