A PERSONAL NOTE fROM STEVEN
YOU ARE CAPABLE OF SO MUCH MORE THAN YOU KNOW
“The Art of Impossible is a must-read! Steven Kotler is one of a handful of people on the planet with a deep understanding of the frontiers of human performance. His ability to bring applied neuroscience and psychology to life through storytelling is world-class. This book is a treasure.”
-DR. MICHAEL GERVAIS
CO-FOUNDER OF COMPETE TO CREATE
"This book is literally impossible. I've been tracking Steven's work for ten years now, and it is impossible to overstate how important it is. It is impossible that he cracked the code on breakthrough success, yet he has. It is impossible that he put it all down in a book that is impossible to put down, yet he has. Read it and go accomplish the impossible yourself."
CHAIRMAN OF ExO WORKS, AUTHOR OF EXPONETIONAL ORGANIZATIONS
“The Art of Impossible is consistently fascinating. There aren’t many writers I would follow on an intellectual journey as ambitious as this to examine peak performance; fortunately, Steven Kotler is one of them.”
NEW YORK TIMES-BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF RANGE AND THE SPORTS GENE
“In The Art of Impossible, Steven Kotler has managed to articulate what many peak performers intuitively know but can’t explain: that there’s a formula for impossible. Kotler demystifies the mythic, breaking down that formula and giving readers exactly the tools they need to accomplish their dreams, no matter how big.”
“This book is a tour de force of high performance. It’s an essential resource for those looking to align their curiosity, passion, and purpose to have not just a little more flow and creativity in their lives but to have a lot more flow and creativity. Want to learn how to take your innovation to seemingly impossible heights? Steven Kotler will teach you how.”
