Audio Book Summary

The author of the bestselling Bold and The Rise of Superman explores altered states of consciousness and how they can ignite passion, fuel creativity, and accelerate problem solving, in this groundbreaking book in the vein of Daniel Pink’s Drive and Charles Duhigg’s Smarter Faster Better.

Why has generating 'flow' and getting 'into the zone' become the goal of the world’s most elite organizations? Why are business moguls attending Burning Man? Why has meditation become a billion-dollar industry? Why are technology gurus turning to psychedelic drugs to unlock creativity?

All of these people are seeking to shift their state of mind as a way of unlocking their true potential. Altered states, the authors reveal, sharpen our decision making capabilities, unleash creativity, fuel cooperation, and let us tap into levels of inspiration and innovation unavailable at all other times. Stealing Fire combines cutting-edge research and first-hand reporting to explore a revolution in human performance — a movement millions of people strong to harness and utilize some of the most misunderstood and controversial experiences in history.

Building a bridge between the extreme and the mainstream, this groundbreaking and provocative book examines how the world’s top performers—the Navy SEALS, Googlers, Fortune 100 CEOs—are using altered states to radically accelerate performance and massively improve their lives, and how we can too.

Ultimately, Stealing Fire is a book about profound possibility—about what is actually possible for ourselves and our species when we unlock the full potential of the human mind.

    Good book and awesome advancement from 'Rise of Superman'. The narrator didn't do it for me. Needed more energy for a high energy and exciting book.

    A little biased because this is my first audiobook, but it was very thorough, very scientific. The book explores a? wide range of the cognitive thought capabilities as well as the human history. Definitely worth a read to anyone who's curious and headed down that route of consciousness and maybe a good way to catch themselves from stumbling too far down the rabbit hole. Enjoy and thank you for the awesome content!

    This is an incredibly interesting book! Loved the ideas and where science and technology is taking us! As a professional TV and film sound editor, I appreciated the well spoken and cleaned up dialogue track. Great job with the narration.
