After a two-plus year journey, Peak Performance is almost here!

I’m so excited to finally put Peak Performance in your hands. In anticipation of the launch in a few day, I’m giving away a lot of awesome items if you pre-order it now! More on that below, but first, a bit about the book.

It’s the result of over two years of investigation and interviews to understand the science of success. It’s humbling to see rave reviews from people like Dave Epstein (“I doubt anyone can read without itching to apply something to their own lives”), Adam Grant (“A transfixing book on how to sustain peak performance and avoid burnout”), Dan Pink (“This book will help you become better than you ever imagined”), and so many other individuals whom I really admire. But what I’m most excited about is having YOU experience this book. I wouldn’t be pushing this so hard if I didn’t know the research, reporting, thinking, and writing that went into it was anything but my best. My co-author, Brad Stulberg, and I poured through hundreds of books and research articles, interviewed over 50 world-class performers, and travelled the country to find answers on how to maximize performance and minimize burnout.

Perhaps more than anything, we are most proud of what sets this book apart from so many of the other “success” books out there: Peak Performance is real science, not bro-science. It’s not about hacks, it’s about developing the practices that lead to long-term growth.
