Become a high-achiever by harnessing the power of your biochemistry. Peak performance expert Kotler explains how motivation, learning, creativity, and flow are the four pillars to accomplishing anything. Turning your dreams into reality starts with reading this book.

Description

Bestselling author and peak performance expert Steven Kotler decodes the secrets of those elite performers—athletes, artists, scientists, CEOs and more—who have changed our definition of the possible, teaching us how we too can stretch far beyond our capabilities, making impossible dreams much more attainable for all of us.

What does it take to accomplish the impossible? What does it take to shatter our limitations, exceed our expectations, and turn our biggest dreams into our most recent achievements? 

We are capable of so much more than we know—that’s the message at the core of The Art of Impossible. Building upon cutting-edge neuroscience and over twenty years of research, bestselling author, peak performance expert and Executive Director of the Flow Research Collective, Steven Kotler lays out a blueprint for extreme performance improvement. If you want to aim high, here is the playbook to make it happen!

Inspirational and aspirational, pragmatic and accessible, The Art of Impossible is a life-changing experience disguised as a how-to manual for peak performance that anyone can use to shoot for the stars . . . space-suit, not included.

    Great introduction on getting on that path to mastery. Or stying if you are already under way.

    Outstanding book that I highly recommend. The last several chapters get bogged down with scientific neuro cognitive details that could be summarized. Excellent details nonetheless.
