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 writer 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 readers learn how to enhance their performance via myriad ways including: optimally alternating between periods of intense work and rest; priming the body and mind for enhanced productivity; and developing and harnessing the power of a self-transcending purpose. 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 readers 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\"--<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:description<\/a> \"Title Page; Dedication; Contents; Foreword: Is Healthy, Sustainable Peak Performance Possible?; Introduction: Great Expectations; Section 1: The Growth Equation; 1: The Secret to Sustainable Success; 2: Rethinking Stress; 3: Stress Yourself; 4: The Paradox of Rest; 5: Rest Like the Best; Section 2: Priming; 6: Optimize Your Routine; 7: Minimalist to Be a Maximalist; Section 3: Purpose; 8: Transcend Your\"self\"; 9: Develop Your Purpose; Conclusion; Bibliography and Source Notes; Acknowledgments; About the Authors; Copyright Page.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:exampleOfWork<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/id\/9490693025<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:genre<\/a> \"Electronic books<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:inLanguage<\/a> \"en<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:isSimilarTo<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/9490693025#CreativeWork\/peak_performance<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:name<\/a> \"Peak performance : take advantage of the new science of success<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:productID<\/a> \"986523859<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/www.overdrive.com\/search?q=2561F56F-336F-4094-A4A6-1D0767C8872C<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> \"https:\/\/img1.od-cdn.com\/ImageType-100\/5546-1\/{2561F56F-336F-4094-A4A6-1D0767C8872C}Img100.jpg<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/www.hoopladigital.com\/title\/11896757<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/samples.overdrive.com\/?crid=2561f56f-336f-4094-a4a6-1d0767c8872c&.epub-sample.overdrive.com<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/search.ebscohost.com\/login.aspx?direct=true&scope=site&db=nlebk&db=nlabk&AN=1586212<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <http:\/\/link.overdrive.com\/?websiteID=538&titleID=3369032<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/d2snwnmzyr8jue.cloudfront.net\/rod_9781623367947_180.jpeg<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/www.overdrive.com\/media\/2561F56F-336F-4094-A4A6-1D0767C8872C<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <http:\/\/link.overdrive.com\/?websiteID=496&titleID=3369032<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <http:\/\/link.overdrive.com\/?websiteID=12&titleID=3369032<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <http:\/\/queens.axis360.baker-taylor.com\/Title?itemid=0020873743<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <http:\/\/link.overdrive.com\/?websiteID=83&titleID=3369032<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:workExample<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/isbn\/9781623367947<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nwdrs:describedby<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/986523859<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.\n\n\n<\/div>\n\n
