'A great read and a fascinating insight into performance.' Sir Clive Woodward

We 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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
After reading The Gold Mine Effect I felt compelled to track Rasmus Ankersen down ... Fascinating man with a real insight into High Performance both for individuals and teams that can be applied to business and sport ... a great read and a fascinating insight into performance. -- Sir Clive Woodward
Ankersen provides a left-field take on high performance, with much food for thought. It's wacky, but it works. -- Emma De Vita, Management Today
This is a must-read for any athlete or sportsperson looking to reach for the stars. -- Athletics Weekly
Rasmus Ankersen's thought-provoking book 'The Gold Mine Effect' I believe will become a timeless classic in the ever evolving understanding of ... the notion of talent. Parts of the book defy long-standing traditions around talent development but his intelligent use of real life experiences in and outside of sport should force anyone to ask: are we really doing everything it takes to produce the next generation of world talent? -- Mike Forde, Executive Director, Chelsea Football Club
