Pretty interesting trailer for "The Rise of Superman", the new book by author Steven Kotler. Check out http://www.riseofsuperman.com for more information.
Over the past 30 years, skiers, snowboarders, surfers and other action sports athletes have pushed human performance farther and faster than at any other point in the 150,000-year history of our species.Think of some of the mind-blowing milestones in the last decade: Danny Way jumps the Great Wall of China on a skateboard; Laird Hamilton and Ian Walsh surf waves previously thought impossible; Travis Rice and Jeremy Jones charge Alaskan spines at super‐human speeds; JT Holmes and the Red Bull AirForce BASE jump off the Sears Tower and fly through an urban maze in wingsuits.
Anyone can tap into this optimal state of consciousness to live happer, more productive, more fulfilling lives
How did they do it? In a word, “flow.” Flow is the source code of ultimate human performance. It is a rare and radical state of consciousness where action and awareness merge, self vanishes, time slows down, and major aspects of physical and mental performance skyrocket.

But the book isn’t about how to surf monstrous waves, it uses these athletes as a case study to examine how anyone can tap into this optimal state of consciousness to live happer, more productive, more fulfilling lives. It is time to rise.
