The Rise of Superman

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Steven Kotler

Narrated By: Jeff Cummings

Publisher: Brilliance Audio

Date: March 2014

Duration: 9 hours 25 minutes


Drawing on over a decade of research and firsthand 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 an audiobook about profound possibility, about what is actually possible for our species, and about where—if anywhere—our limits lie.

    Flow - one of those "things" everyone should know. And most all if not all have experienced but not turkey considered. This book revels and unlocks the power in s very engaging way. Should be required reading.

  • Tim Johnson

    good concepts but the book child be subtitled "the over dramatized history of surf and skate". And if it wasn't already too dramatic, the narrator is even moreso.
