Learn how to think like some of the greatest nonconformist minds of our era, and how to question, challenge, hack, and create new rules for YOUR life in this inspiring manifesto to defining success on your own terms.

What if everything we think we know about how the world works—our ideas of love, education, spirituality, work, happiness, and love—are based on Brules (bullsh*t rules) that get passed from generation to generation and are long past their expiration date?

The Code of the Extraordinary Mind is a blueprint of laws to break us free from the shackles of an ordinary life. It makes a case that everything we know about the world is mostly decided not by rational choice—but instead by conditioning and habit.

Blending computational thinking, integral theory, modern spirituality, evolutionary biology, and humor, personal growth entrepreneur Vishen Lakhiani provides a revolutionary 10-point framework for understanding and enhancing the human self. He developed this framework based on his personal experiences, the five million people he’s reached through Mindvalley, and two hundred hours of interviews and questions posed to incredible minds, including Elon Musk, Richard Branson, Peter Diamandis, Ken Wilber, Dean Kamen, Arianna Huffington, Michael Beckwith, and other legendary leaders.

As you learn to integrate Lakhiani’s 10 Laws into your daily life, you’ll never again be fooled into following a rule that doesn’t serve your best interest. You will learn about bending reality. You will learn how to apply unique models like consciousness engineering to help you learn and grow at speeds like never before. You will learn to make a dent in the universe and discover your quest.

Once you discover the code, you will question your limits and realize that there are none. Step into a new understanding of the world around you and your place in it, and find yourself operating at a new, extraordinary level in every way to achieve happiness, purpose, fulfilment, and love.

I loooooooved this book!! Vishen Lakhiani is an amazing author and speaker (I listened to the audiobook) and I was inspired and engaged throughout the entire book. One of the best self growth books I've ever read. The book is about questioning the cultural and environmental rules that has been passing for years from a generation to generation and we tend to follow a lot of them without questioning them just because. This book goes deep into some of these "brules" and makes you process them on a personal level and re-evaluate them. It goes on into many topics such as gratitude, forgiveness, meditation, spirituality, religion, and so many similar deep philosophical topics. And it's the kind of book that you finish and start all over again. It has so many exercises and practices that can live with you for the rest of your life. I'd strongly recommend this book to everyone and any one.

Amazing book, thank you Vishen! Provides you with a framework to create a balanced life which I personally really liked. A lot of other books try to go deep into one area and focus on that which may lead you to create a life that's amazing in one area but really lacks in others. Think this is a really good basis and starting point to build your life upon, you can go deeper into the many areas talked about in the book by reading specific books on those areas. Vishen also recommends a few of his favorites. Overall really recommend it!

A little bit helpful but too draggy ... Helped me realize a few issues , but may need to be shorter and less self reflective ..

It was easy to read/listen, but the repetitiveness eventually got annoying. I certainly got some ideas to check and try by myself, yet having read many same sorts of books, it was not mindblowing. Worth for people at the beginning of self-help discovery road, but might be waste of time and credit, or money for people already well on their way.

Just like so many others in here, I thought this was quite a mind-blowing, well-written, and narrated piece. You get submersed in ideas to help you make better choices for yourself regarding all areas of your life, personal, work, family, friends, love, and the environment you live in physically and psychologically. I found the approach to change to be subtle and progressive, which, in my opinion, is quite important to achieve success. Be ready to question everything you do and think from a caring and understanding perspective. Be open to change, and you'll love it too :)

In my opinion, this is a very complete book on self improvement. The consciousness engineering chapter was a game changer for me. I would give this book 4 stars but it earns an additional star for all the awesome complementary content available only.
