Description

A few common principles drive performance, regardless of the field or the task at hand. Whether someone is trying to qualify for the Olympics, break ground in mathematical theory or craft an artistic masterpiece, many of the practices that lead to great success are the same. In Peak Performance, Brad Stulberg, a former McKinsey and Company consultant and journalist who covers health and the science of human performance, and Steve Magness, a performance scientist and coach of Olympic athletes, team up to demystify these practices and demonstrate how everyone can achieve their best.

The first book of its kind, Peak Performance combines the inspiring stories of top performers across a range of capabilities - from athletic, to intellectual, to artistic - with the latest scientific insights into the cognitive and neurochemical factors that drive performance in all domains. In doing so, Peak Performance uncovers new linkages that hold promise as performance enhancers but have been overlooked in our traditionally-siloed ways of thinking. The result is a life-changing book in which listeners will learn how to enhance their performance via myriad ways including: optimally alternating between periods of intense work and rest; developing and harnessing the power of a self-transcending purpose; and priming the body and mind for enhanced productivity.

In revealing the science of great performance and the stories of great performers across a wide range of capabilities, Peak Performance uncovers the secrets of success, and coaches listeners on how to use them. If you want to take your game to the next level, whatever "your game" may be, Peak Performance will teach you how.

Good, but

Sleep enough

There, I saved you an Audible credit.

Although the part about mission is good, it's a short portion of the book.

Everything in this book is valuable

As someone who is becoming disillusioned with most things self-help, I was pleasantly blown away here. This book offers to the point, scientifically backed insight into getting the most out of yourself and contribute to society in a healthy way. Very good narration does the material justice. Totally worth a credit.

Took Stephen Covey's 7 Habits to the next level

I really enjoyed this book! It took Stephen Covey's 7 Habits to the next level by helping you simplify your mission statement and put it into action through suggestions and good examples. I especially liked the suggestion to make your goals and life purposes focused on serving others. There were many other pearls as well. Enjoy the read and thank you Marty Vaughn for recommending it!

Ok but not ground breaking

What did you take away from Peak Performance that you can apply to your work?

This provided some simple, usable suggestions on how to avoid getting burnt out.

Any additional comments?

Although this book gave examples of 'peak performance' from both a physical/sports aspect and a work/profession, I found it to be very myopic in that it did not provide any insight on how to handle real world stressors and work-life balance.

The book spoke to opportunities for achievement as 'stressors' and did not touch on how important it is to be able to have a fulfilling work life AND personal life. A lot of the 'peak performer' examples given this book are of people who literally secluded themselves from family and friends to ensure their success. Those people seem to have the luxury of doing such a thing while most people do not.

The book did not give examples of what these peak performers did when their ass was on the line at work and then something horrible happened at home, or vice versa, and they are still *required* to perform in both areas. Those are the real life 'stressors' I was hoping to gain some insight on and not whether I should consider only having one set of clothes in my closet to avoid decision fatigue. How about the big decisions like either I take off work to take my child to the doctor, or I risk losing a project, or getting fired, because it may be given to someone who leadership believes to be more committed to their job?

Brilliant

If you could sum up Peak Performance in three words, what would they be?

Insightful, action-orientated, powerful

What did you like best about this story?

The combination of great research, lively story telling, useful examples and practical application.

What does Christopher Lane bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Clear and easy to follow with great pace.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

YES

Any additional comments?

Anyone who whats to be more effective in sports, business or life should read this book. It is the best book I have listened to in 2016 (along with Stretch)

pulling performance ideas from many sources

I listened to the audio book, which I enjoyed. the authors did a great job of pulling performance-enhancing concepts from many disciplines and weaving then together well...the effect was to show different dimensions of an idea (e.g., how rest affects performance). this format could have been disorienting but was well-executed.

I particularly liked the summaries at the end of each chapter and the book itself; these helped to reinforce the practical steps to peak performance and kept the book from being an abstract thought-piece

Really Enjoyed It!

Was originally a bit skeptical just by the title and some of the claims. However, I was very pleasantly surprised by this book!

If you are someone who is motivated and enjoys fully committing to an objective, but gets overwhelmed or burnt out this book is for you! They add clarity to the (stress + rest = growth) formula in a way I haven't heard before. They really hammer home this concept and, after reading this book, righteously so.

Love how they also incorporate the most recent science behind the psychology of performance and how to train your brain to think in a way that supports it. Well done!

Nothing new

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

This book is an overview of others' research. If you're familiar with the likes of Kelly McGonigal, Anders Ericsson, Carol Dweck, Angela Duckworth, Benedict Carey, Thomas M. Sterner etc. then you will be disappointed. If you're not familiar with them then this is an OK summary of some of their popular ideas although I would recommend reading the original works of the above researchers/writers.

Has Peak Performance turned you off from other books in this genre?

No. But I would research who the author is more diligently.

Could change your life - but you have to show up

Reader is good and the Story fantastic. It makes a lot of sense and most things are backed up by science. Not promising wonderland. You have to show up:-) I loved it.

Excelente libro!

Excelente libro "Audio Book". Bien relatado, claro, estructurado, con mucho sentido. Me llevo varios puntos como tarea para mejorarme cada dia y ser mas feliz, sustentablemente.

Spoiler Alert. 3 favorite points. "The power of purpose", "You can only beat yourself, if your motivation goes beyond yourself", "Minimalist to be Maximalist". Thank to the Authors, great Book! You helped me :)
