groundbreaking book, New York Times–bestselling author Steven Kotler decodes
the mystery of ultimate human performance. Drawing on over a decade of research
and first-hand reporting with dozens of top action and adventure sports
athletes like big wave legend Laird Hamilton, big mountain snowboarder Jeremy
Jones, and skateboarding pioneer Danny Way, Kotler explores the frontier
science of “flow,” an optimal state of consciousness in which we perform and
feel our best.
Building a bridge
between the extreme and the mainstream, The Rise of Superman explains how these
athletes are using flow to do the impossible and how we can use this
information to radically accelerate performance in our own lives.
At its core, this is
a book about profound possibility; about what is actually possible for our
species; about where—if anywhere—our limits lie.
Review: I've only gotten half way through this as of yet but it has diffidently open my mind to possibility and explains a lot of things when you go into the zone. Very good read and I do recommend this to my friends.
