Read full description of the books The Rise of the Superman: Decoding the Mysteries of the Ultimate Human Performance:Razor-sharp analysis of how record-breaking exploits in extreme sport are redefining the limits of being human.
Over the past three decades, the bounds of the possible in action and adventure sports – from sky-diving to motocross to surfing and beyond – have been pushed farther and faster. A generation’s worth of iconoclastic misfits have rewritten the rules of the feasible; not just raising the bar, but obliterating it altogether. Along the way, they have become a force pushing evolution relentlessly onward.
In a thrilling narrative that draws on biology, psychology, and philosophy, Steven Kotler asks why, at the tail end of the 20th century and the early portion of the 21st, are we seeing such a multi-sport assault on reality? Did we somehow slip through a wormhole to another universe where gravity is optional and common sense obsolete? And where – if anywhere – do our actual limits lie?
