Описание

Wall Street Journal Bestseller

In this 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 audiobook about profound possibility; about what is actually possible for our species; about where-if anywhere-our limits lie.

    Examines how extreme athletes have pushed human achievements further and faster than anytime in previous history by achieving "flow" or the mental state of being completely in the moment & having everything happen seamlessly & without thought. Cutler argues that anyone can use flow to "hack" their life to achieve amazing results in all areas of creativity, work, etc. A fascinating read.

    It's my first time hearing about Flow. Steven Kotler explains the concept so vividly and in such great detail using real events in history, that I now have a strong conviction that my life will never be the same again. I want to intentionally keep tapping into my flow state as I pursue all my dreams. Thank you Steven Kotler.

    The book could have been called "953 Stories about Extreme Sport Athletes and 5 minutes about Flow"... Indeed, the book talks very little and very sparsely about the actual state of flow and HOW TO attain that state. The ratio must approximately be 3 pages of stories for 1 sentence about flow afterwards. So yes, the book IS interesting -- as far as the stories go -- but I wish there had been more emphasis on the theory and principles of Flow. Still 4 stars, because it is the first time I hear that subject so thoroughly discussed.
